DOES IMPROVING SCHOOL QUALITY REDUCE THE PROBABILITY OF UNEMPLOYMENT?
ERIC R. EIDE
MARK H. SHOWALTER
The authors investigate the relationship between high school quality and the probability of extended unemployment among noncollege-bound men during three periods: the first two years, two to four years, and seven to nine years after high school. They find that larger high schools and schools with lower pupil-teacher ratios tend to decrease the probability of being unemployed for noncollege-bound men in the period shortly after high school graduation. However, no effect is found of high school quality on unemployment probabilities approximately a decade after high school completion.
