ISQOLS WEBINAR:

Do teachers matter for students' wellbeing and long-term success?


THURSDAY

December 8

9:00am EST/3:00pm CET


Using rich cohort data in the United Kingdom, this paper estimates teacher value-added on students' test scores and non-cognitive skills in primary school. I find that that teachers are important on both the determination of students' test scores and non-cognitive skills. Conditional on teacher effects on students' test scores, teacher effects on students' non-cognitive skills persist over time and reach into early adulthood, predicting a range of economic and social outcomes measured at age 20, including going to university, labour market aspirations, risky health behaviours, and attitudes towards others.


Presented by: Sarah Fleche
