Goldhaber, Dan; Strunk, Katharine O.; Brown, Nate; Knight, David S. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2016
One consequence of the Great Recession is that teacher layoffs occurred at a scale previously unseen. In this article, we assess the effects of receiving a layoff notice on teacher mobility using data from Los Angeles and Washington State. Our analyses are based on 6-year panels of data in each site, including 4 years of layoffs. We find that the…

Goldhaber, Dan; Hansen, Michael; Walch, Joe – National Center for Analysis of Longitudinal Data in Education Research (CALDER), 2016
We rely on natural experiments in North Carolina and Washington State, which previously extended time to tenure by one year, to estimate models that assess the relationship between the extended probationary period and absence and attrition outcomes for teachers affected by the new tenure laws. Across both states we find evidence of decreases in…

Goldhaber, Dan; Grout, Cyrus; Huntington-Klein, Nick – Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness, 2015
It is well documented that teachers can have profound effects on student outcomes. Empirical estimates find that a one standard deviation increase in teacher quality raises student test achievement by 10 to 25 percent of a standard deviation. More recent evidence shows that the effectiveness of teachers can affect long-term student outcomes, such…

Goldhaber, Dan; Lavery, Lesley; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2015
We investigate patterns of teacher mobility in districts with different collective bargaining agreement (CBA) transfer provisions. We use detailed teacher-level longitudinal data from Washington State to estimate the probability that teachers of varying experience and effectiveness levels transfer out of their schools to another school in the…

Goldhaber, Dan; Grout, Cyrus; Holden, Kristian L.; Brown, Nate – Educational Researcher, 2015
Due to data limitations, very little is known about patterns of cross-state teacher mobility. It is an important issue because barriers to cross-state mobility create labor market frictions that could lead both current and prospective teachers to opt out of the teaching profession. In this article, we match state-level administrative data sets…

Goldhaber, Dan; Grout, Cyrus; Holden, Kristian; Brown, Nate – Center for Education Data & Research, 2014
Barriers to the cross-state mobility of the teacher workforce can have undesirable effects on the teacher workforce and student outcomes. While a large literature addresses issues related to within-state mobility, very little is known about patterns of cross-state mobility. This paper addresses that research gap. We describe features of Oregon's…

Goldhaber, Dan; Gross, Betheny; Player, Daniel – Center for Education Data & Research, 2010
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…
