Education policies: empirics and design

Leuven, June 24 & 25, 2010


The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers that work on different policy aspects of education, more precisely, school choice, parental preferences over schools, the determinants of school performance and the use of performance-based instruments to regulate schools, with the goal that the research on one aspect can enrich the perspective on the other aspects.
