Family education investment is an important mechanism that affects the stratification of urban and rural education in China. This article analyzes the urban-rural gap in China’s family education investment and focuses on comparing the two levels of family education expenditure and education participation. The study found that the total expenditure for children ‘s education in urban households during compulsory education is higher than that in rural households, and the gap between the two in terms of extra-school tutoring expenditure is even greater. In terms of family education participation, the education participation behavior of urban families among children of compulsory education stage is more frequent, and the counseling time is longer than that of rural families. Rural families’ care for their children’s life and learning is significantly weaker than urban families. The comparative study of urban and rural family education investment in this article is helpful to understand the formation of urban and rural education inequality, and to grasp the specific differences between urban and rural family children’s education investment in compulsory education stage.
