Goldhaber, Dan D.; Brewer, Dominic J.
Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, v22 n2 p129-45 Sum 2000
Used data for 3,786 students in mathematics and 2,524 in science to explore the relationship between student performance and the type of certification teachers held. Found evidence in mathematics that teachers with subject-specific training outperform those without subject matter preparation but found no poorer performance for students whose teachers had emergency certification. Discusses implications for teacher certification policies. (SLD)
