Ep. 47 – June 18, 2018 – Impact of Magnet Schools in San Diego

In San Diego, one in ten students attends a magnet school, and because admission is sometimes determined by lottery, researchers have been able to study the impact of attending a magnet school on long-term outcomes.

In this episode, Julian Betts of the University of California, San Diego joins Paul E. Peterson to discuss his research on magnet schools in San Diego.

Betts is the co-author of “The Long-Term Effects of Public School Choice: Lottery Evidence from San Diego,” with Sam M. Young, Andrew C. Zau and Karen Volz Bachofer, available at
