When Teachers are Absent: Where do They Go and What is the Impact on Students?

ABSTRACT

The Determinants of Student Performance in Indonesian Public Primary Schools: The Role of Teachers and Schools

In this paper we investigate the determinants of student performance in mathematics and dictation tests among fourth-grade school children in Indonesia. We use a unique dataset of school and student information that was collected in a nationally representative survey of 110 public schools in 8 Indonesian provinces in 2003. Using an OLS regression technique that compensates for heteroskedasticity, we conduct separate sets of student-level regressions for three performance variables: math scores, dictation scores and combined scores.
