Does Economic Research in Education Work? For Which Studies?
Makel, Matthew C.; Wai, Jonathan
Journal of Advanced Academics, v27 n2 p73-80 May 2016
In their National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) working paper, "Does Gifted Education Work? For Which Students?" Card and Giuliano (C & G) made an enormous splash in not just gifted education but also the world (e.g., "The Washington Post," "The Atlantic," Five Thirty Eight). In this commentary, we highlight what we think C & G have done well, what they could have done better, and what the field can learn from their economic perspectives and approaches to the evaluation of gifted education.
