''Teacher quality and teacher salaries: the case of Pennsylvania''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.3 )
Both teacher quality and teacher salaries are endogenously correlated in the teacher labor market. Therefore, due to endogeneity, we develop three econometric simultaneous-equation models to examine the link between teacher quality and teacher salaries. A total of 500 school districts in the state of Pennsylvania during the school years 1999-2000 to 2001-2002 are selected for a case study. Results reveal a positive and significant relationship between these two.
Keywords: Teacher quality; Teacher salary
JEL: I2 - Education: General
C3 - Multiple or Simultaneous Equation Models: All other
