Are There Hidden Costs Associated with Conducting Layoffs? The Impact of Reduction-in-Force and Layoff Notices on Teacher Effectiveness | JPAM Featured Article

The Great Recession of 2008 led to widespread layoffs in both the public and private sectors. While there is a literature of empirical work that shows the direct costs of such employment reductions, there is little work that examines the less obvious consequences associated with layoffs and the process through which layoffs occur.

Evidence-Based Policymaking at #2017APPAM

October 4, 2017 11:14 AM

The APPAM Fall Research Conference has long been the place to learn what’s going on in the world of evidence-based research. With the publication of the Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking Report last month, we wanted to highlight the conference sessions that will touch on issues raised by this important report.

The theme of the conference this year is Measurement Matters: Better Data for Better Decisions. We understand the utilization of evidence-based research and strategies for policy making is more important than ever.

As you plan your time at the conference by browsing the agenda, be sure to keep an eye out for these sessions. We’ll see you in Chicago for #2017APPAM!
