Effectiveness of educational priority policies

  • Estimate the impact of (changes in) educational priority policies on educational equality by means of country-level fixed-effects models (based mainly on PISA 2003-2015, and possibly also on LFS and PIAAC data).
  • In-depth research on how the additional funding is used in practice (shifts in class size, better staffing, additional services etc.).
