Compensation Policies and Teacher Decisions

Publication Abstract

Stinebrickner, Todd R. 2001. "Compensation Policies and Teacher Decisions." International Economic Review, 42(3): 751-779.

A dynamic discrete choice framework with a flexible structure for unobserved heterogeneity is used to model the occupational decisions of individuals who are certified to teach in elementary and secondary schools. The model is estimated using data from the National Longitudinal Study of the High School Class of 1972 and is used to examine effects of possible changes in the compensation policy for teachers.
