American Kids, Why Don't They Study?
American students work less than East Asian students in high school, but work more in college. We propose an explanation for this puzzle, using a two-stage-signaling model. Signaling can occur over time both in high school and college. We show that main signaling stage may be high school or college, and that students work harder in the main signaling stage. We also find that the main signaling is more likely to occur in high school if human networking is important for job productivity or if education environments among high school students are homogeneous
