Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy; Liddle, Stephanie – Center for Education Data & Research, 2021
We use data on over 14,000 teacher candidates in Washington state, merged with employment data from the state's public schools and Unemployment Insurance system, to investigate the career paths and earnings of teacher candidates in the state. Around 75% of candidates are employed in some education position in each of the 5 years after student…

Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy; Choate, Kathryn; Brown, Nate – Center for Education Data & Research, 2021
A growing quantitative literature finds evidence that student teaching placements predict later outcomes of teacher candidates and their students, but there is little large-scale quantitative evidence about the mechanisms for these estimated relationships. We use data from a survey of STEM teachers in Washington State to better understand how…

Goldhaber, Dan; Imberman, Scott A.; Strunk, Katharine O.; Hopkins, Bryant G.; Brown, Nate; Harbatkin, Erica; Kilbride, Tara – Center for Education Data & Research, 2021
The decision about how and when to open schools to in-person instruction has been a key question for policymakers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The instructional modality of schools has implications not only for the health and safety of students and staff, but also student learning and the degree to which parents can engage in job activities.…

Choate, Kathryn; Goldhaber, Dan; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2020
COVID-19 profoundly impacted teacher preparation during the close of the 2019-20 school year. Based on survey responses from nearly all Washington State teacher education programs (TEPs), we find that the pandemic had predictable but concerning effects on teacher preparation; most notably, student teaching requirements were greatly reduced or…

Objective: To determine whether the disparities in access to care observed within pediatric populations along the lines of race/ethnicity, socio-economic status, and geography are mirrored in student access to school nursing services. Method: Using school district employment records we linked 1,346 nurses to 1,141,495 students working in 296…

Long, Mark; Goldhaber, Dan; Gratz, Trevor – Center for Education Data & Research, 2019
Indiana, Oklahoma, and Washington have programs designed to address college enrollment and completion gaps by offering a promise of state-based college financial aid to low-income middle school students in exchange for making a pledge to do well in high school, be a good citizen, not be convicted of a felony, and apply for financial aid to…

Goldhaber, Dan; Long, Mark; Gratz, Trevor; Rooklyn, Jordan – Center for Education Data & Research, 2019
Indiana, Oklahoma, and Washington each have programs designed to address college enrollment gaps by offering a promise of state-based college financial aid to low-income middle school students in exchange for making a pledge to do well in high school, be a good citizen, not be convicted of a felony, and apply for financial aid to college. Using a…

Goldhaber, Dan; Long, Mark; Person, Ann E.; Rooklyn, Jordan – Center for Education Data & Research, 2019
We investigate factors influencing student sign-ups for Washington State's College Bound Scholarship (CBS) program and consider whether there is scope for the program to change college enrollment expectations. We find that student characteristics associated with signing the scholarship closely parallel characteristics of low-income students who…

Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 2018
We use a novel database of the preservice apprenticeships ("student teaching placements") of teachers in Washington State to investigate the relationship between mentor effectiveness (as measured by value added) and the future effectiveness of their mentees. We find a strong, positive relationship between the effectiveness of a teacher's…

Goldhaber, Dan; Grout, Cyrus; Harmon, Kim; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 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…

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…

Goldhaber, Dan; Krieg, John; Theobald, Roddy – Center for Education Data & Research, 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…

Conaway, Carrie; Goldhaber, Dan – Center for Education Data & Research, 2018
A key job of education policymakers is to make decisions under uncertainty. They must weigh the risks, rewards, and costs of different interventions, policies, and mixes of resources, and make decisions even when the likely outcome is uncertain. How policymakers think about and deal with uncertainty has important implications for resource…
