However, this paper shows that the brief Allied occupation systematically increased opposition to the budding ...

Mohrenstr. 58

Time: 12:30 - 13:30

We present evidence that the practice of holding back poorly performing students affects estimates of the impact of class size on student outcomes based on within-school variation of cohort size over time. This type of variation is commonly used to identify class size effects. We build a theoretical model in which cohort size is subject to random shocks and students whose performance falls ...
