Schooling Quality in a Cross Section of Countries
NBER Working Paper No. 6198
We investigate the determinants of educational quality in a panel data set that includes" output and input measures for a broad number of countries. The results show that family inputs" and school resources are closely related to school outcomes, as measured by internationally" comparable test scores, repetition rates, and drop-out rates. Family characteristics income and education of parents, have strong effects on student performance. The findings also" indicate that more school resources - especially smaller class sizes but probably also higher" teacher salaries and greater school length - enhance educational outcomes."
