Teacher Licensure Status and Student Achievement: Lessons from Private Schools
Sharkey, Nancy S.; Goldhaber, Dan
Economics of Education Review, v27 n5 p504-516 Oct 2008
Data from the "National Education Longitudinal Survey of 1988" (NELS:88) were used to investigate the effect of teacher licensure status on private school students' 12th grade math and science test scores. This data includes schooling and family background information on students that can be linked to employment information on teachers. We find that, contrary to conventional wisdom, private school students of fully certified 12th grade math and science teachers do not appear to outperform students of private school teachers who are not fully certified. (Contains 4 tables.)
