I find that half of the Brazilian labour market is mismatched, with similar proportions of over- and undereducated. Overeducated (undereducated) workers earn significantly lower (higher) than their co-workers who…

Gourley, Patrick; Madonia, Greg – Education Economics, 2021
The conferment of tenure at a United States university provides substantial job security to its recipients. Tenure is designed to allow a professor the ability to explore new and risky research questions without fear of losing their position due to lack of publications. At the same time, this policy creates an incentive system with an ambiguous…

This paper analyzes the impact of grading practices on the gender gap in student achievement. We examine the gender difference in the difference between teacher grading and scores on national exams to test whether there are gender differences associated with different grading systems.

We investigate the relationship between preschoolers' self-regulation and their mathematical competence and its development over the first two years of primary school using data from the German National Educational Panel Study (NEPS). Our results imply a positive association between self-regulation and mathematical competence levels, even when…

Bredtmann, Julia; Otten, Sebastian; Vonnahme, Christina – Education Economics, 2021
We analyze whether non-native speakers in the classroom affect students' educational achievement and social integration. In contrast to previous studies, which mainly examine the effect of the share of immigrant pupils, we focus on language heterogeneity by using a novel measure of the degree of linguistic diversity in the classroom. Conditional…

Lee, Jungmin; Lee, Yong-Kwan – Education Economics, 2021
Shortening the school week is a controversial policy with little empirical investigation. We examine how shortening the school week can affect the time allocation of children and their parents. In South Korea, the government shortened the school week from 5.5 to 5 days gradually from 2006 to 2011. Using time-use data from 2004-2014, we found that,…

Dumas, Audrey; Silber, Jacques – Education Economics, 2021
Data on educational attainments are often qualitative data where the only information available is the highest level of education of the individual. If these levels of education may be ranked, the information available becomes ordinal. It is then possible to use measures of inequality as well as of overall attainment suggested in recent years…

By exploiting reforms implemented by the University, we estimate the effect of the excess…

Ayaita, Adam; Stürmer, Kathleen – Education Economics, 2020
Risk aversion might affect current and potential teachers' reaction to reforms, such as payment reforms. However, evidence on teachers' risk aversion in comparison to other occupations is limited. The present study is based on twelve waves of a representative German data set (N = 18,381) and shows that teaching relates positively to risk aversion,…
