This study investigates the relationship between fertility and education through levels of education of a mother and her children. The study used primary data collected in Morogoro region among women who have reached their menopause. A total of 654 women were included in the survey. The logistic regression model results show that women with lower fertility have higher odds of having children who attain bachelor degrees. Majority of firstborns who obtained bachelor degrees or above came from families with lower fertility. A similar trend of educational attainment was observed among second born and last born.
