Goldhaber, Dan; Gross, Betheny; Player, Daniel – Journal of Policy Analysis and Management, 2011
In this paper we examine the mobility of early-career teachers of varying quality, measured using value-added estimates of teacher performance. Unlike previous studies that have examined these issues, we focus on the variation in these effects across the effectiveness distribution. We find that, on average, more effective teachers tend to stay in…

Gross, Betheny; DeArmond, Michael; Goldhaber, Dan – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2010
Education reformers routinely call on school districts to stop hiring teachers based on seniority, which they argue interferes with effective staffing, especially in disadvantaged schools. The few researchers who have empirically studied the issue, however, disagree about whether seniority-based hiring is systematically associated with staffing…

DeArmond, Michael; Gross, Betheny; Goldhaber, Dan – Educational Administration Quarterly, 2010
In this article, the authors explore how school-based hiring reforms play out among schools serving different students in different locations within a single district. In particular, they consider how the intersection of school-based capacity and local school context affect teacher selection practice and outcomes. The analysis is based on a…

Gross, Betheny; Goldhaber, Dan – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2009
As the demand for higher education has grown, so has the role of community colleges in providing post-secondary education to students. The development of curriculum articulation and school transfer policies is one policy movement that demonstrates the extent to which state policymakers view community colleges as creating greater and broader access…

Goldhaber, Dan; Gross, Betheny; Player, Daniel – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research, 2009
Most studies that have fueled alarm over the attrition and mobility rates of teachers have relied on proxy indicators of teacher quality, even though these proxies correlate only weakly with student performance. This paper examines the attrition and mobility of early-career teachers of varying quality using value-added measures of teacher…

Goldhaber, Dan; Gross, Betheny; DeBurgomaster, Scott – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2008
This paper reviews state cross-institutional policies designed to better integrate state community colleges with traditional four-year colleges and university system schools, commonly referred to as "transfer and articulation policies," and examines how patterns of college attendance, transfer, and degree earning vary across states with different…

Gross, Betheny; Booker, T. Kevin; Goldhaber, Dan – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2009
Between the late 1980s and early 2000s, schools, districts, states, and the federal government devoted enormous resources to the implementation of Comprehensive School Reform (CSR) models. With more than 1.6 billion federal dollars distributed through the Comprehensive School Reform Demonstration (CSRD) project and its successor, the CSR project,…

Goldhaber, Dan; Gross, Betheny; Player, Daniel – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research, 2007
Most studies that have fueled alarm over the attrition and mobility rates of high-quality teachers have relied on proxy indicators of teacher quality, which recent research finds to be only weakly correlated with value-added measures of teachers' performance. We examine attrition and mobility of teachers using teacher value-added measures for…
