Prospects In The Academic Labor Market For Economists, Ronald G. Ehrenberg 2012 Cornell University

Prospects In The Academic Labor Market For Economists, Ronald G. Ehrenberg

Ronald G. Ehrenberg

[Excerpt] American colleges and universities are increasingly substituting nontenure track full-time and part-time faculty for full-time tenured and tenure track faculty. Moreover, institutions of public higher education, where almost two-thirds of the full-time faculty members at four-year institutions are employed, are under severe financial pressure. The share of state budgets devoted to public higher education is declining. The salaries of economics department faculty members at public higher education institutions have fallen substantially relative to the salaries of their counterparts at private higher education institutions, and it is becoming increasingly difficult for the publics to compete for top faculty in economics ...


Adam Smith Goes To College: An Economist Becomes An Academic Administrator, Ronald G. Ehrenberg 2012 Cornell University

Adam Smith Goes To College: An Economist Becomes An Academic Administrator, Ronald G. Ehrenberg

Ronald G. Ehrenberg

[Excerpt] I have conducted research and taught classes on the economics of higher education for almost 20 years. I spent the last three years as a senior central administrator and executive officer of Cornell University. ... My experiences in this position opened my eyes to the use and uselessness of economic analysis in trying to help guide a major university and what I have learned is the focus of this essay. I begin by asking whether it is useful to view universities in a utility-maximizing framework, as I and others have done in the past. I show that the way universities ...


Are School Superintendents Rewarded For “Performance”?, Ronald G. Ehrenberg, Richard P. Chaykowski, Randy Ann Ehrenberg 2012 Cornell University

Are School Superintendents Rewarded For “Performance”?, Ronald G. Ehrenberg, Richard P. Chaykowski, Randy Ann Ehrenberg

Ronald G. Ehrenberg

[Excerpt] This chapter presents analyses of the compensation and mobility of school superintendents in New York State during the 1978-79 to 1982-83 period. The focus is on school superintendents because they are the chief operating officers of school districts, their salaries are determined through individual "negotiations" with school boards, and their salary data were made available to us. In contrast, school principals' salary data were not available to us. Especially in large districts, principals tend to be members of a union and their salary increases negotiated collectively, which limits the likelihood of observing individual principals' salaries being related to measures ...


Are Black Colleges Producing Today's African-American Lawyers?, Ronald G. Ehrenberg 2012 Cornell University

Are Black Colleges Producing Today's African-American Lawyers?, Ronald G. Ehrenberg

Ronald G. Ehrenberg

In past years, almost all of America's black lawyers came from historically black colleges and universities because these schools were the only ones that would admit black students. Today, it appears that black colleges are producing increasingly fewer of the nation's black lawyers.


The Social Security Student Benefit Program And Family Decisions, Ronald G. Ehrenberg 2012 Cornell University

The Social Security Student Benefit Program And Family Decisions, Ronald G. Ehrenberg

Ronald G. Ehrenberg

In 1965 Congress established the Social Security Student Benefit Program which provided benefits for children of deceased, disabled or retired workers, who were enrolled in college full—time and were not married, up until the semester they turned age 22. The program grew to be a major financial aid program; at its peak in FY 81 it represented about 20% of all federal outlays on student assistance for higher education. The program was terminated for students newly entering college as of May 1, 1982. Somewhat surprisingly, in contrast to the debate that accompanies most social programs, debate over the student ...


The Changing Distributions Of New Ph.D. Economists And Their Employment: Implications For The Future, Ronald Ehrenberg 2012 Cornell University ILR School

The Changing Distributions Of New Ph.D. Economists And Their Employment: Implications For The Future, Ronald Ehrenberg

Ronald G. Ehrenberg

[Excerpt] Academic careers are no longer the be-all and end-all for economics Ph.D. students, and the findings and background provided by Siegfried and Stock help to explain why this is so. The median age at which individuals receive economics Ph.D.'s in the Siegfried and Stock sample is 32. While they are somewhat surprised at this finding, it parallels the experiences of many other fields. Increasingly, students are working before proceeding to doctoral studies. Often Ph.D. students in economics enter their programs after having spent several years working for government agencies or research consulting companies—work that ...


My Life And Economics, Ronald G. Ehrenberg 2012 Cornell University

My Life And Economics, Ronald G. Ehrenberg

Ronald G. Ehrenberg

[Excerpt] Age 51 is a bit early to be writing a retrospective about one's career as an economist and one's life. This is especially true for me since I am not on track to win a Nobel Prize, to be admitted to the National Academy of Science, or even to be elected a Fellow of the Econometric Society. Nonetheless, as I write this essay during the fall of 1997, I look back on the 28 years I have spent as a PhD economist and see a record of accomplishment of which I am proud and a number of ...

Many educators struggle with connecting students to their learning, especially in mathematics. This study focused on integrating art into the classroom, specifically in the core content area of mathematics. The study sought to examine the effects of art integration on students’ dispositions, students’ enjoyment of mathematics, and students’ academic achievement. Sixteen students in a K5 Kindergarten classroom with one primary classroom teacher participated in this study. Throughout the 6-week research period, students participated in art and non-art activities correlated to ...

Increasing Reading Comprehension And Motivation Through Teacher Led Read Aloud Lesson Plans, Patrick E. Collins

Master's Theses, Capstones, and Projects

Reading aloud to students is viewed as a beneficial tool for them to learn reading. The purpose of this study was to see if using read alouds to teach reading comprehension strategies affect comprehension and motivation in students. Third and fourth grade students were given four weeks of reading strategy instruction though teacher led read alouds. Two reading strategies were the focus of the study; text features and questioning the text. Students were given a survey as a pre and posttest measure of their attitude toward reading. Students also completed a pre and post reading comprehension test. My findings indicate ...

Motivation And Syllabification Intervention, Melissa M. Frey

Master's Theses, Capstones, and Projects

The purpose of this study was to explore the effect of syllabification and extrinsic motivators on the decoding skills of one 12-year-old African American male with severe reading deficits. The student was from a large urban district and attended a public school where he received Individualized Education Plan (IEP) services for a Specific Learning Disability (SLD). The subject participated in six sixty-minute sessions over the course of four weeks, engaging in phonics strategies that centered around a third-grade level novel the participant choose. He was also subject to external, student-led trackers that monitored progress in the areas of decoding and ...

Effects Of Vocabulary Interventions On The Comprehension In The Science Content Area, Elizabeth A. Wellinghoff 2012 Cardinal Stritch University

Effects Of Vocabulary Interventions On The Comprehension In The Science Content Area, Elizabeth A. Wellinghoff

Master's Theses, Capstones, and Projects

The purpose of this case study was to determine if the use of specific vocabulary interventions increase comprehension in the science content area. This was a comparison study which compared the effects of two vocabulary interventions. Half of the study used the Frayer model, while the other half used Learning vocabulary in context reading strategy. The hypothesis was that both learning interventions will increase comprehension, but the Frayer Model will be the more effective intervention for increasing comprehension. The intervention plan and procedure were connected to with current research on comprehension in the content areas. The student received 15 intervention ...
