Notes
  • We evaluate the effectiveness of a resource-based policy on im- proving school quality measured in terms of pupils’ test scores. Using several data sets, we present a set of empirical tests to control for pupil’s prior attainment, policy-off policy-on, duration of the funding and subjects of specialisation. We apply matching methods to con- front issues of the choice of an appropriate control group and selection bias. After matching we find a positive and statistically significant policy effect on test score levels, but this is approximately 50% lower than our ‘naive’ estimates. Difference-in-differences estimates show a significant and positive effect on the change in test scores.
