    Nonformal Education and Occupational Stratification

    Implications for Latin America

    Thomas J. La Belle, Robert E. Verhine
    La Belle and Verhine trace the development of nonformal education and question whether it can bring significant income and status benefits to the economically disadvantaged in developing countries. They review research on the relationship between education and occupation and examine two theories which purport to explain this relationship. The authors conclude that as long as the credentials of formal schools continue to be the most salient factor in the job market, nonformal education—education without traditional credentials —will do little to increase social and economic equality.
