Abstract

This paper aim to study the impact of teacher status on the behaviour of Benin’s primary school teachers in the context of the growing expansion of the hiring of non civil servant teachers. To address this issue we estimate both negative binomial model and linear instrumental variable model to assess the effect of to be either civil servant or non civil servant teacher both on the absenteeism frequency and the end of year performance of pupils in primary school. We find that the fact to be non civil servant teacher negatively affect absenteeism both in CP2 and CMI. Considering the impact on the pupil’s performances the results show that non civil servant women have a positive effect on the pupil’s performances in CP2 while this effect is ambiguous in CMI. Theses finding are relevant and useful in order to define the type of contract which insure a better and efficient educative system.
