Adult Learning in Modern Societies

An International Comparison from a Life-course Perspective

Edited by Hans-Peter Blossfeld, Elina Kilpi-Jakonen, Daniela Vono de Vilhena and Sandra Buchholz

As industrial societies increasingly evolve into knowledge-based economies, the importance of education as a lifelong process is greater than ever. This comprehensive book provides a state-of-the-art analysis of adult learning across the world and within varying institutional contexts. The expert contributors examine the structures of formal and non-formal adult learning in different countries, and investigate the levels of success those countries have experienced in encouraging participation and skill formation.

The Finnish day care system is considered to be one of the most universalistic in the world. Day care is heavily subsidized by the state and completely free for low-income families. Yet compared to other Nordic countries a substantially higher number, 40 per cent of children aged one to five, are taken care of at home. In this chapter we show that day care is positively associated with later educational outcomes in the Finnish context. Half or more of this advantage is explained by the positive selection into day care of children with highly educated parents. Further analysis indicates that the remaining association is either due to selection on other family background factors, or is mediated by lower family income and weaker labour market ties of the parents. Although some previous studies have found heterogeneous effects, we find them to be similar for all levels of parental education.

Social Inequality Across the Generations

The Role of Compensation and Multiplication in Resource Accumulation

Edited by Jani Erola and Elina Kilpi-Jakonen

Social Inequality Across the Generations provides an innovative perspective on social stratification studies by advancing the theoretical and empirical case for the influence of resource compensation. It examines whether resource compensation is a successful mechanism for social mobility, contrasting it against competing types of resource accumulation such as multiplication. This book is the first to cover extensively the role of compensation in intergenerational attainment – a new and rapidly spreading concept in stratification research.
