Can I Choose to Have Grit? Non-Cognitive Skills, Behavior, and School Choice
Nichols, Malachi
Journal of School Choice, v11 n4 p622-641 2017
With the introduction of school choice as a viable option of school reform, researchers have begun to look beyond academic achievement to the effects of choice on alternative outcomes. Recently, non-cognitive skills and behavior stand at the front of those alternative outcomes. From the most up to date relevant literature it appears that school choice has adverse effects on non-cognitive skills but positive effects on behavior. The potential presence of reference group bias highlights the possibility that the negative effects of choice on non-cognitive skills may not be real.
