A Major Decision? The Consequences of College Course Taking

Grant Year: 2018

Rodney Andrews, Scott Imberman, Michael Lovenheim, and Kevin Stange will examine how colleges can best serve as engines of upward mobility for students from low-income backgrounds. They will make use of a large student-level dataset in Texas that records primary and secondary school performance; college attendance, course taking, and performance; and employment and earnings of students. The project’s findings will appear in a series of reports, papers, and briefings for state officials.
