Race, ethnicity, and residential location by John F Kain( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analyzed in this paper are the determinants of racial and ethnic segregation and their effects on the residence patterns of black and ethnic populations in Cleveland. The extent of current and past racial segregation in the Cleveland area is discussed. Particular attention is given to the influence of socioeconomic factors and ethnicity on residential segregation. Other determinants of racial segregation considered include workplace location, black preferences for segregation, and discriminatory practices. (Author/EB)

Teachers, schools and academic achievement by Eric A Hanushek( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considerable controversy surrounds the impact of schools and teachers on the achievement of students. This paper disentangles the separate factors influencing achievement with special attention given to the role of teacher differences and other aspects of schools. Unique matched panel data from the Harvard/UTD Texas Schools Project permit distinguishing between total effects and the impact of specific, measured components of teachers and schools. While schools are seen to have powerful effects on achievement differences, these effects appear to derive most importantly from variations in teacher quality. A lower bound suggests that variations in teacher quality account for at least 7¿g± percent of the total variation in student achievement, and there are reasons to believe that the true percentage is considerably larger. The subsequent analysis estimates educational production functions based on models of achievement growth with individual fixed effects. It identifies a few systematic factors a negative impact of initial years of teaching and a positive effect of smaller class sizes for low income children in earlier grades but these effects are very small relative to the effects of overall teacher quality differences
New evidence about Brown v. Board of Education : the complex effects of school racial composition on achievement by Eric A Hanushek( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uncovering the effects of school racial composition on academic achievement is difficult, because racial mixing in the schools represents a complex mixture of government and family choices. While the goals of school integration legally inspired by Brown V. Board of Education are very broad, this paper focuses on the contribution of school racial composition to the racial and ethnic achievement. It uses a unique matched panel data set on individual Texas students and schools to identify the impacts of racial composition on academic achievement and to differentiate these from other aspects of school quality and from differences in student ability and family background that might drive any observed relationship between achievement and school demographic composition. Results show that having a higher percentage of black schoolmates has a strong adverse effect on black students' achievement, and the effects are highly concentrated in students who have shown high academic achievement in the early grades. Racial composition has a noticeably smaller effect on the achievement of lower ability Blacks, of Whites, and Hispanics, suggesting that the results are not a simple reflection of unmeasured school quality. The results are consistent with the view that black students exert peer pressure on others to under-perform and that a higher proportion of Blacks in a school may lead teachers to lower their expectations for all black students.

Do higher salaries buy better teachers? by Eric A Hanushek( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper draws on the matched panel data of the utd Texas School Project to investigate how shifts in salary schedules affect the composition of teachers within a district. When trying to estimate the true relationship between teacher quality and salaries, four methodological problems typically intervene: measuring teacher quality; distinguishing between shifts in salary schedules and movements along a given schedule; determining how the recent history of pay levels, combined with current pay, influences the composition of teachers; and discerning the existence of compensating differentials for different working conditions, which complicates the interpretation of observed salary differentials across districts and states. The panel data permit separation of shifts in salary schedules from movement along given schedules, and, thus, the analysis is more closely related to existing policy proposals. In analyses both of teacher mobility and of student performance, teacher salaries were shown to have a modest impact. Teacher mobility was more affected by characteristics of the students (income, race, and achievement) than by salary schedules. Salaries were also weakly related to performance on teacher certification tests--appearing to be relevant only in districts doing high levels of hiring. The only significant relationship between salaries and student achievement held (implausibly) for existing experienced teachers but not for new hires or for probationary teachers.

Does special education raise academic achievement for students with disabilities? by Eric A Hanushek( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While special education has become a hotly debated issue of school policy, most of the discussion has centered on the aggregate costs of providing mandated programs for disabled children. Little attention has been paid to the effectiveness of such programs or possible interactions with the provision of regular education. This study, building on the unique data of the Harvard/UTD Texas Schools Project provides direct evidence on the effectiveness of special education programs. The average special education program boosts mathematics and reading achievement of special education students, particularly those classified as learning disabled, while not detracting from regular education students. These results are estimated quite precisely from models of fixed effects in achievement gains, and they are robust to a series of specification tests. At this stage, it is not possible to judge whether the program benefits are sufficiently large to justify the added spending involved

Why public schools lose teachers by Eric A Hanushek( Book )

14 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many school districts experience difficulties attracting and retaining teachers, and schools in urban areas serving economically disadvantaged and minority students appear particularly vulnerable to these problems. This paper investigates factors that affect the probabilities that teachers will switch schools or exit the public schools entirely. Researchers used matched student/teacher panel data on Texas public elementary schools to gain a better understanding of the effects of salary and other school factors on teacher transitions. These data permitted a detailed description of student demographic and school characteristics and pre- and post-move comparisons for teachers who switched schools within Texas or left the Texas public schools. Teachers were divided by experience, school community type, ethnicity and other factors so researchers could examine differences in the responsiveness to salary and student characteristics on the basis of teacher experience, race, and ethnicity. Results indicate that teacher mobility is much more strongly related to characteristics of students, particularly race and achievement, than to salary, although salary exerts a modest impact once compensating differentials are taken into account. Non-black, non Hispanic teachers systematically prefer non-black, non-Hispanic students, while the opposite is true for black and Hispanic teachers. (Contains 56 references.) (Sm)
The journey-to-work as a determinant of residential location by John F Kain( Book )

12 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study presents some empirical evidence on the manner in which transportation costs influence the household's choice of a residential location. It also describes a residential location model which considers the problem of residential location. This model makes it easier to understand the empirical tests offered in this paper. The central hypothesis, suggested by this and similar models, is that households substitute journey-to-work expenditures for site expenditures. This substitution depends primarily on household preferences for low-density as opposed to high-density residential services
Disruption versus Tiebout improvement : the costs and benefits of switching schools by Eric A Hanushek( Book )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most students change schools at some point in their academic careers, but some change very frequently, and some schools experience a great deal of turnover. Many researchers, teachers, and administrators argue that mobility harms students, particularly disadvantaged students in high turnover, inner city schools. However, economists emphasize the importance of Tiebout mobility in which parents change districts in pursuit of higher quality schools. Empirical research on mobility has yielded inconclusive results. This paper develops a general theoretical model that identifies school quality changes resulting from moving. The empirical analysis, which exploits the rich longitudinal data of the University of Texas at Dallas Texas Schools Project, disentangles the disruption effects associated with moves from changes in school quality. The results suggest that there is a small average increase in school quality for district switchers, while there is no evidence that those switching schools within districts obtain higher school quality on average. The results also show a significant externality from moves: students in schools with high turnover suffer a disadvantage, and the cost is largest for lower income and minority students who typically attend much higher turnover schools.
