Questions related to Economics of Education
I would like to thank Nury Ariani Wulansari's research team for citing my research paper "Job Satisfaction and Employee's #Self-Schema at Workplace: A Literature Review" in their presentation at International Conference on Economics, Business, and Economics Education 2019. I believe it can be an outstanding professional movement to consider #staff requirements and attitudes regarding the job and prepare a convenient atmosphere, the Nury research team also thought.
Also, I would like to know your opinion regarding staff job satisfaction. Which factors are imperative for an organization and staff to have a dynamic work environment with high outcomes?
I am considering as research an estimate of the equilibrium between supply and demand of pedagogical training, considering how the government makes a decision to offer (or not) pedagogical training to teachers, and, concomitantly, how is the decision making of teachers in participate (or not) in pedagogical training. I thought about doing this using game theory, but I'm not sure what kind of model I should use, or what I should consider to determine that model. Has anyone worked with something similar and could give me any suggestions?
I am an independent researcher in the field of economics of education. need guidance the sources ( like website, forum ) to find the independent research projects.
I´m writing my bachelors thesis and originally wanted to study the effect of tuition fees on socioeconomic/intergenerational mobility. I couldn´t find any suitable theory so I´ll have to figure out a new subject.
I´v now thought about the following themes and would be extremely thankful for recommendations on theory or another interesting subject/viewpoint.
- The effect of an additional year of schooling on intergenerational mobility; the relations theory and actualization during years 19XX-20XX. (I`ve found a dataset for mobility and would like to use STATA or R for the empirical chapters)
- The effect of compulsory secondary/upper secondary education on intergenerational mobility
- Interrupted work careers and subsequent earnings; gender earnings gap
- The obligations/binding nature of unemployment benefits and its effect on the employment rate( comparing Finland, Switzerland, Sweden, USA, Denmark. Obligations on a scale from 1-5)
I`ve studied each subject, but am most familiar with economics of education and social/socioeconomic/intergenerational -mobility.
Or have suggestions on the methods that could be used for such a evaluation.
As an economist and secondary education economics professor interested in education and labor economics I want to understand the phenomena of skill development in both the educational system (with an special focus on secondary and higher education) and the workplace, and their interactions.
This knowledge will be useful to improve educational and job-market related policies.
Voice of Customer (VOC) is vital while improving the quality of any product or process. At Higher education level, students are the main customer to decide the quality of education. Are the institutions providing importance to their students views while improving quality?
having a discrete variable will affect it's distribution, so is it appropriate to assume it is continuous especially there will be problem in the interpretation of the results?
Actually we are investigating on how the number of enrolled university students affect the local economic development of a region.
I am thinking of doing research using econometrics model to calculate Returns to Education. If there is any article/literature/books available as reference, I would love to receive a link.
This is actually the initial longitudinal study to be conducted with bio-feedback. The purpose for the research is to see best practices of of breaking the cycle of incarceration in at risk families; what is the best time to do intervention of pregnant women who are incarcerated or facing incarceration; what is the method of proposed interventions'; should the intervention include pre/post release programs to include parenting classes, home economics, educational support, healthcare, mental healthcare, and is so what should be the time limit to show the change. The study also proposes that each of us are what are parents are at the time of conception. From gestation to birth the babies in uteri are constantly being impacted by the mothers bio-rhythms as a natural phenomenon with pregnancy. We submit that the biorhythms of incarcerated women or those facing incarceration can through the subjective transfer of those interventions mentioned above impact a generation to break the cycle of incarceration.
Increasingly educational systems are turning to market practices to improve efficiency. I was wondering what quantitative variables have been used to measure the market environment in which these practices (i.e. school choice) take place? There seems to be a decent amount on higher education but I am interested primarily in primary/secondary education.
Studies concerning these students or graduates of the RN-BSN program have been done in developed countries and the findings have informed curriculum reviews. Increased student satisfaction in the program has been associated with flexibility, independent adult learning, faculty support, financial aid, an online program etc.
I'm especially interested in empirical results, possibly quantitative research. Numerous articles discuss the logical connection between the finance and governance of higher education and a country's economic growth (e.g. OECD Higher Education at a Glance, researches at Bruegel by Aghion et al., Jacobs & Ploeg), but just few of these can justify the direction and the scale of causation.
What is the effect of extra higher education public spending on economic growth? Controlling for other development indicators, how does the proportion of higher edu. degree population affect growth? How can we measure the indirect effect of higher education on economic development (i.e. "production" of intellectuals, development of political culture, innovation as positive externalities)?
Human capital theory suggests that there is a direct relationship between the level of education and income, under this premise, the OECD encourages countries to invest in education to reduce existing wage disparities. However, for developing countries the effects of spending on education tend to be oscillatory. That's when the question arises about whether developing countries should substantially increase the level of spending on education, if so, it would be advisable to do so at all levels?
Finally, it is possible to reach an optimal level of spending on education, which maximize the benefits of society? if so, under what arguments would be valid
