Eric Hanushek Can Governments Legislate Higher Teacher Quality? Can government legislate higher teacher quality?

By Eric A. Hanushek and Steven G. Rivkin


This paper discusses different perspectives from which to assess teacher quality and develops a conceptual framework focusing on outcome based measures of instructional performance. Results from a series of analyses on academic achievement in Texas public schools are used to describe both the variation in teacher effectiveness and the extent to which that variation is captured by observable measures of teachers and classrooms. These empirical findings form the basis of a discussion of alternative policy approaches to raising quality, particularly for economically disadvantaged students. CONTENT
