The paper examines the impact of international migration on child education in Bangladesh. The analysis is based on a balanced panel dataset obtained from two rounds of Bangladesh integrated household surveys conducted by International Food Program Research Institute in 2011 and 2015. In this paper, fixed effect model combined with instrumental variables are used. The findings suggest that there is a negative relationship between international migration and child education in Bangladesh.
