2015 REPORT  

At PEPG we are proud of the exceptional scholars who have partic- ipated in our training and research programs. In the 2015 annual report, we celebrate some of their research. While the PEPG scholars often worked with other colleagues, we list here the former PEPG graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and academic visitors whose recent work is featured in the accompanying pages:

Martin R. West (Harvard) explores the ways in which charter schools lift students to their full potential.

Ludger Woessmann (University of Munich) documents the 27th place in math performance attained by U.S. students at age 15 among the 34 countries of the industrialized world.

Michael Henderson (Louisiana State University) reports that members of the public, on average, think that 22% of the teachers in their local district are turning in an unsatisfactory performance.

Matthew Chingos (Brookings Institu- tion) and Guido Schwerdt (University of Konstanz) demonstrate that online learn- ing at Florida Virtual School is at least as good as what takes place in the classroom.

Anna J. Egalite (Harvard) shows that public schools perform better in Indiana and Louisiana when they face competition from voucher-funded private schools.
