Peer Effects on Student Achievement: Evidence from Chile.
McEwan, Patrick J.
Economics of Education Review, v22 n2 p131-41 Apr 2003
Reports estimates of peer effects on student achievement, using a 1997 census of eighth-grade achievement in Chile. The data allow detailed measures of peer characteristics to be constructed for each classroom within a school. Estimates suggest that the classroom mean of mothers' education is an important determinant of individual achievement, though subject to diminishing returns. (Contains 36 references.) (Author/PKP)
