Looking at assorted studies suggesting

2023-09-05 01:40:02.52583+02 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Looking at assorted studies suggesting that maybe low income kids had some educational delays because of COVID school changes, and others that are pretty conclusive that those changes definitely decreased childhood suicides and improved family happiness, and now I'm wondering about the income patterns in those later studies...

That reminds me of this that's making the rounds: https://twitter.com/cremieuxrecueil/status/1697852861239988393

As I understand it, the claim is that more years of poor schooling has no impact on income, wealth, or home ownership.

Well that's fascinating! I remember the Dale & Krueger suggestions that, except for extremely low-income students, college outcomes are predicted by what schools one applied to, not what schools one got into.

The idea that the desire for learning is well established by mid to late teens, and that more forced schooling doesn't change that, sure sounds plausible.
