Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy; Tien, Christopher – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
Despite the consistent policy focus on diversifying the teacher workforce, this workforce still fails to reflect the diversity of the student body in U.S. public schools. Dan Goldhaber, Roddy Theobald, and Christopher Tien examine the theoretical arguments and empirical evidence supporting the importance of teacher workforce diversity. They…

Goldhaber, Dan; Quince, Vanessa; Theobald, Roddy – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
Empirical evidence shows that disadvantaged students tend to have less-qualified and less-effective teachers than their more-advantaged peers. These teacher quality gaps (TQGs), which have existed for decades and across many measures of student disadvantage and teacher quality, are an important factor explaining student achievement gaps between…

Strunk, Katharine O.; Cowen, Joshua M.; Goldhaber, Dan; Marianno, Bradley D.; Kilbride, Tara; Theobald, Roddy – Educational Policy, 2018
We examine more than 1,000 collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) in place across California, Michigan, and Washington. We investigate the prevalence of a set of 43 key provisions between and within these states, providing the first comprehensive comparison of CBA terms using data drawn from economically and demographically different districts,…

Marianno, Bradley D.; Kilbride, Tara; Theobald, Roddy; Strunk, Katharine O.; Cowen, Joshua M.; Goldhaber, Dan – Educational Policy, 2018
There is considerable speculation and some empirical evidence that teacher collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) in urban school districts are more restrictive to district administrators than CBAs in other districts. We build on prior work by comparing urban with nonurban CBAs in three states--California, Michigan, and Washington--and, for a set…

Goldhaber, Dan; Grout, Cyrus; Harmon, Kim; Theobald, Roddy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
Purpose: A burgeoning literature investigates the importance of student teaching placements for teacher candidate development, but an important perspective that is largely missing from the existing literature is that of the school districts that host student teachers. In this paper, we describe the student teaching process from the perspective of…

Theobald, Roddy; Goldhaber, Dan; Gratz, Trevor; Holden, Kristian – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
We use longitudinal data on high school students in Washington State to assess the relationships between English Language Arts (ELA) teacher value added and other qualifications and the high school and postsecondary outcomes of their students. We also investigate whether these relationships differ for students with and without disabilities. We…

Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
We exploit within-teacher variation in the years that teachers host an apprentice ("student teacher") in Washington State to estimate the causal effect of these apprenticeships on student achievement, both during the apprenticeship and afterwards. The average causal effect of hosting a student teacher on student performance in the year…

Strunk, Katharine O.; Cowen, Joshua; Goldhaber, Dan; Marianno, Bradley D.; Kilbride, Tara; Theobald, Roddy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
In many school districts the policies that regulate personnel are governed by collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) negotiated between teachers' unions and school boards. While there is significant policy attention and, in some cases, legislative action that has affected the scope of these agreements, there is relatively little research that…

Krieg, John; Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
We use comprehensive data on student teaching placements from 14 teacher education programs (TEPs) in Washington State to explore the sorting of teacher candidates to the teachers who supervise their student teaching ("cooperating teachers") and the schools in which student teaching occurs. We find that, all else equal, teachers with…

Goldhaber, Dan; Quince, Vanessa; Theobald, Roddy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
We use longitudinal data from North Carolina and Washington to study the extent to which four processes--teacher attrition from each state workforce, teacher mobility within districts, teacher mobility across districts, and teacher hiring--contribute to "teacher quality gaps" (TQGs) between advantaged and disadvantaged schools. We first…

Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy; Fumia, Danielle – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
We use panel data in Washington State to study the extent to which teacher assignments between fourth and eighth grade explain gaps between advantaged and disadvantaged students--as defined by underrepresented minority status (URM) and eligibility for free or reduced price lunch (FRL)--in their eighth grade math test scores and high school course…

Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2018
We use comprehensive data on student teaching placements from 14 teacher education programs (TEPs) in Washington State to explore the sorting of teacher candidates to the teachers who supervise their student teaching ("cooperating teachers" or CTs) and the schools in which student teaching occurs. All else equal, teachers with more…

St. John, Elise; Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2018
Student teaching has long been considered the most important component of an effective teacher education program. Recently, new research is finding links between these experiences and teacher candidates' future effectiveness, yet relatively little is known about the student teacher placement process and, in particular, the processes that lead to…
