Quick question: is Finnie controlling for income?

I was the first in my family too.

In that study, he didn't have income data. There is of course a positive correlation between parents' income and university education, but it turns out that this correlation can largely be explained by the fact that highly-educated parents typically have higher incomes. Once you control for educational attainment, the extra explanatory power of inceom per se is marginal.

I agree with you that this is most decidedly an excellent idea! Students learn by example, and when the example is NOT to attend college, they often fall into an established family pattern, not really recognizing that they may forge a new path for themselves and their own future children!
