Kyoko Taniguchi


This study identifies individual, family, and school factors associated with student mobility. Specifically, for Grade 5
students, parents alive and school location were associated with transfer. For students in Grade 7, gender differences,
levels of achievement, feelings about school, number of household tasks, distance to school, and parental habits of

the institution are correlated with Grade 7 student mobility. The findings contribute to ongoing discussions about
educational policy regarding transfer.
