【Abstract】

The impact of parental migration on school behavior of their children is multidimensional and differentiated by age. Based on the data from China Education Panel Survey, this paper measures the school behavior of left-behind older children from three perspectives: integration into class, adaptation to school life and personal behavior control, and estimates the effect of parental migration on children’s school behavior by propensity score analysis. The results show that parental migration negatively affects school behavior of left-behind older children significantly, especially the class integration and personal behavior control. The parent-child separated migration not only affects the market competitive ability of the human resource in the near future, but also the ability to adapt to and be integrated into the society of the next generation, which needs to get more attention.
