The Demand for Teacher Characteristics in the Child-Care Labor Market

Grant Year: 2016

Chris Herbst will examine whether the quality of early childhood programs can be increased through more effective teacher recruitment and hiring practices. He will mail out fictitious resumes to a random sample of early-childhood-care providers in order to measure the qualities and characteristics, such as educational background, work experience, and certification status, that employers prioritize when hiring teachers. The project’s findings will appear in an article.
