Education and intergenerational transmission of poverty. Navarra (Spain)
The intergenerational transmission of poverty has been a reality in human history and despite the great social advances made, it remains nuanced in 21st century Europe, where the educational level reached by parents is intimately related to the risk of poverty of his descendants.
In 2010, the risk of poverty among European minors whose parents had a primary education level was twice that of those with parents with an average level of education and six times that of those with parents with higher qualifications (respectively 60%, 30% and 10%). The economic crisis of 2007 has determined that between 2010 and 2014 the risk of poverty or social exclusion of European children increased at all levels of parental education.
