Public school choice plans are intended to increase equity and quality in education by offering students at under-performing schools immediate academic gains from attending a higherachieving school and by creating demand-side pressure on under-performing schools to improve.

We develop a model to show how these gains from choice depend on heterogeneity in how parents choose schools, and test. Preferences and Heterogeneous Treatment Effects in a Public School Choice Lottery}, year = {}} Share.

Hastings Department of Economics Yale University and NBER Several recent papers have estimated the average treatment effect of winning a lottery to attend a first choice school, abstracting away from the underlying factors. The older cohorts enable us to run placebo-treatment tests, whilst the younger cohorts permit us to estimate time-varying treatment effects.

Our school choice measure c i is still the same as in Section 6, i.e. measured before the reform. The time-varying treatment effects thus measure how the reform affected student outcomes, stratified by Cited by: Preferences and Heterogeneous Treatment Effects in a Public School Choice Lottery.

Nevertheless, non‐government schools may have heterogeneous effects; that is, they may benefit particular groups of students.

Google ScholarAuthor: Marc L. Stein, Jeffrey A. Grigg. Heterogeneous treatment effects, i.e. effects that vary by the probability of selection into treatment, are seldom studied in empirical sociological applications. Researchers are often concerned with key covariates that are believed to be of primary importance, such as gender and race, and often test interaction effects between treatment and Cited by: Together with our estimates of the and treatment effects (− and percentage points), the shares suggest that the promise to cut financial support to parents with young children reduced the support for the left-bloc parties by approximately percentage points in the election and that the promise to put a cap on child Cited by: separate treatment effects for subgroups, and 10 articles (29%) estimate treatment effects for ten or more subgroups.

While testing for heterogeneous treatment effects through interaction terms or subgroup analyses is clearly desirable from a research perspective, applying traditional standard errors and p-values is not appropriate.

LSP Heterogeneous Effects 1 Heterogeneous Effects across Schools in the First Year of the Louisiana Scholarship Program Private school choice programs, which provide families with public funds to attend private schools of their choosing, are among the most controversial education reform initiatives in the United States.

Given the importance of student engagement for academic success (Finn & Rock,p. ) and the intuitive idea that more choices should lead to a higher probability of finding a school that matches children’s needs and preferences, in this paper we use data from a national probability sample and consider the effect of the amount of school Cited by: 6.

This makes it difficult to separate the school effect from unobserved student and family characteristics that might affect both school choice and : Stephen Q. Cornman.As school choice is a widely endorsed school improvement policy, this assumption is also an important policy issue, and the academic and policy debates on school choice are both controversial and unresolved (Hoxby, ).
