Tales from the Other Side of Education Finance: Other Districts' Schools, Other Pathways into Teaching, and Other People's Preferences


  • Randall Reback

    () (Department of Economics, Barnard College, Columbia University)


This policy brief discusses research concerning general equilibrium effects in three areas of education policy and discusses the policy implications of this research. Each section includes a brief summary of one chapter from my doctoral dissertation (Reback 2003), a review of the general literature on the chapter’s topic, and a discussion of policy implications and unresolved questions meriting further research. The three topics covered are the general equilibrium effects of school choice programs on housing markets, college course offerings on teacher labor markets, and the composition of the electorate on voters’ behavior in local public school referenda. © 2007 American Education Finance Association
