    Working Papers RUG Competition Student Sorting and Performance Gains in Local Education Markets The Dutch Secondary Sector Sofie J Cabus Ilja Cornelisz Abstract This paper empirically tests the e ect of competition between Dutch schools 1 on the sorting of students by performance levels in schools at the start of secondary education and 2 on performance gains in the secondary school career controlling for sorting patterns We use data from about 13 000 students going to 102 di erent school locations in the Netherlands Using di erences in the distribution of competition intensity across education markets we apply Kernel estimation techniques to match students from relatively high to low competitive markets on the basis of student level and household level characteristics Our results indicate that with increasing competition relatively more schools target the group of high achieving students As a result schools have to settle for enrolling more students at the margin as to ensure su cient enrollment rates To conclude we observe that accounting for sorting patterns competition is related to small improvements in academic achievement at the bottom of the distribution of student performance within the rst three years of secondary education However a negative impact of competition is found for categorical academic classrooms settings JEL I21 I28 Key words Competition Local Education Markets Sorting Related information Related People Dr Cabus Sofie Dr Ilja Cornelisz Working Paper Download TIER About Tier About Tier UvA About Tier UM About Tier RUG Tier Business Plan TIER Midterm Report 2010 Vacancies People All People People UvA People UM People RUG Visiting scholars Working Papers All Working Papers Working Papers UvA Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG Education Programme Master MEBIT Master MEPE Premaster MEBIT Academische Meesterwerken Enrollment Courses Graduate program Workshops Seminars Workshop on Education Economics News LEER Workshop on Education

  • Sofie J. Cabus, Roel J. Ariës; What Do Parents Teach their Children? – On Birth Order and Performance Differences in Dutch Compulsory Education - TIER research
    Parents Teach their Children On Birth Order and Performance Differences in Dutch Compulsory Education Theory and evidence indicate that if family size grows the younger children will get less parental involvement than the older children These differences in parental involvement through birth order may impact academic achievement if and only if parental involvement is an important determinant of children s educational attainment The oldest child then benefits the most in terms of educational outcomes This hypothesis is tested for one European country the Netherlands by using an instrumental variables empirical strategy In particular birth order is used as an instrument for parental involvement in order to account for endogeneity issues The estimates show a robust negative relationship between birth order and parental involvement and significant positive medium to large effects of parental involvement through birth order on various measures of academic achievement Furthermore our findings indicate that academic achievement is rooted in a school supportive home climate often created by the mother and unrelated to parents background Notwithstanding mothers indispensable role in teaching values about school ing to her children at home having both parents concerned about education can significantly increase achievement and reduce grade retention in Dutch compulsory education Keywords Birth Order Communication Homework Involvement Parents Student Achievement Related information Related People Dr Cabus Sofie Roel Ariës Working Paper Download Working Papers All Working Papers Working Papers UvA Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG TIER About Tier About Tier UvA About Tier UM About Tier RUG Tier Business Plan TIER Midterm Report 2010 Vacancies People All People People UvA People UM People RUG Visiting scholars Working Papers All Working Papers Working Papers UvA Working Papers UM Working Papers RUG Education Programme Master MEBIT Master MEPE Premaster MEBIT Academische Meesterwerken Enrollment Courses Graduate program Workshops Seminars Workshop on Education Economics
