Handbook of the Economics of Education. Volume 2
Hanushek, Erik A., Ed.; Welch, F., Ed.
The Handbooks in Economics series continues to provide the various branches of economics with handbooks which are definitive reference sources, suitable for use by professional researchers, advanced graduate students, or by those seeking a teaching supplement. With contributions from leading researchers, each Handbook presents an accurate, self-contained survey of the current state of the topic under examination. These surveys summarize the most recent discussions in journals, and elucidate new developments. Although original material is also included, the main aim of this series is the provision of comprehensive and accessible surveys.

Hanushek); (15) Drinking from the Fountain of Knowledge: Student Incentive to Study and Learn--Externalities, Information Problems and Peer Pressure (John Bishop); (16) Schools, teachers, and Education Outcomes in Developing Countries (Paul Glewwe and Michael Kremer); (17) Has School Desegregation Improved Academic and Economic Outcomes for Blacks? (Steven G. Rivkin and Finis Welch); (18) Teacher Quality (Eric A. Hanushek and Steven G. Rivkin); (19) Teacher Supply (Peter J.
