Abstract

Education is a typical process of accumulating human capital, which not only improves the overall quality of rural labor, but also increases income. The income gap between urban and rural residents is closely associated with education investment in Yunnan Province. Through the use of econometric model, the research finds that investment in both education and fixed assets can lead to the widening of urban-rural income gap. Therefore, measures should be taken to ensure equal allocation of financial resources to narrow the income gap caused by education investment and other factors.
