The effect of age at school entry on educational attainment in Germany by Michael Fertig( )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Determining the optimal age at which a child should enter school is a controversial topic in education policy. In particular, German policy makers, pedagogues, parents, and teachers have since long discussed whether the traditional, established age of school entry at 6 years remains appropriate. Policies of encouraging early school entry or increased consideration of a particular child's competency for school ("Schulfh̃igkeit") have been suggested. Using a dataset capturing children who entered school in the late 1960s through the late 1970s, a time when delaying enrolment was common, we investigate the effect of age at school entry on educational attainment for West and East Germany. Empirical results from linear probability models and matching suggest a qualitatively negative relation between the age at school entry and educational outcomes both in terms of schooling degree and probability of having to repeat a grade. These findings are likely driven by unobserved ability differences between early and late entrants. We therefore use a cut-off date rule and the corresponding age at school entry according to the regulation to instrument the actual age at school entry. The IV estimates suggest there is no effect of age at school entry on educational performance"--Forschungsinstitut zur Zukunft der Arbeit web site
Social Norms and Mothers' Labor Market Attachment The Medium-Run Effects of Parental Benefits by Jochen Kluve( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increasing mothers' labor supply is a key policy challenge in many OECD countries. Germany recently introduced a generous parental benefit that allows for strong consumption smoothing after childbirth and, by taking into account opportunity costs of childbearing, incentivizes working women to become mothers and return to the labor force rapidly. Using a sharp regression discontinuity design, we estimate policy impacts for up to 5 years after childbirth and find significant and striking patterns
Endogenous exit bias in training programs for unemployed workers( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper assesses the importance of reverse causality when evaluating the impact of training duration for unemployed workers. We use planned duration as an instrumental variable for actual duration. Our results suggest that the potential endogeneity of exits seems to be only relevant in the lower and upper part of the treatment duration distribution. -- treatment duration ; local average treatment effect ; dropouts
