Fair student placement
Abstract We revisit the concept of fairness in the Student Placement framework. We declare an allocation as $$\upalpha $$ α -equitable if no agent can propose an alternative allocation that nobody else might argue to be inequitable. It turns out that $$\upalpha $$ α -equity is compatible with efficiency. Our analysis fills a gap in the literature by giving normative support to the allocations improving, in terms of efficiency, the Student Optimal Stable allocation.
