McGee, Josh B.; Winters, Marcus A. – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2019
Most U.S. public school teachers participate in defined benefit retirement plans, which base benefits on years of service and their last few years of salary.

Cortes, Kalena E.; Lincove, Jane Arnold – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2019
We examine the role of information in college matching behavior of low- and high-income students, exploiting a state automatic admissions policy that provides some students with perfect a priori certainty of college admissions. We find that admissions certainty encourages college-ready low-income students to seek more rigorous universities.…

There are unique challenges to estimating causal effects of preschool for students with special needs that have not received attention in the literature. We revisit the Head Start Impact Study (HSIS) to illustrate that when and how special needs is defined has implications for the internal validity of and interpretation of special needs subgroup…

Performance funding in higher education is intended to incentivize increased degree production at American colleges and universities by linking state funds directly to institutional outcomes. However, many critics suggest that such funding arrangements create systems of "winners and losers" by rewarding some institutions over others.…

Relying on a classroom fixed-effects…

In the early 1990s, the Supreme Court established standards to facilitate the release of school districts from racial desegregation orders. Over the next two decades, federal courts declared almost half of all districts under court order in 1991 to be "unitary"--that is, to have met their obligations to eliminate dual systems of…
