The Importance of School Infrastructure toStudents and Teacher Labor Markets: Regression-Discontinuity Evidence from School Bond Elections

Award Year

2011

Grant Type

Early Career Research Award

Description

The project will examine the effects of school infrastructure on student achievement and on teacher labor markets. Unprecedented budget shortfalls have caused most states to make substantial cuts to school funding which may have long-term economic and social consequences. This project seeks to estimate the effect of school facility spending on teacher labor markets using regression-discontinuity methods. The student-level data records from the state of Texas will be used for the project.
