“Early Estimates of the Effects of Public School Shootings in California on California Public Schools”
Abstract: I employ data from California public schools covering years 1991 to 2017 with data on public school shootings in the state of California over the same period to study the effects of school shootings on schools. This project aims to understand how dropout, enrolment, and achievement measures respond to school shootings. A secondary objective includes discerning whether fatal and non-fatal shootings have differential effects on schools and student outcomes. I will present early results, and I welcome helpful comments and criticism.
Join us for lunch following the talk as we celebrate and bid farewell to all graduating CCPR affiliated students
