Overview

New York City serves over one million public school students each year, yet relatively little is understood in terms of how students progress through the school system. In this talk we use individual-level student data over a ten-year time period to explore how early test performance correlates with later success, to describe and predict which students leave the public school system, and to examine effects of the recently implemented high school choice system.
