Abstract :

This paper investigates the determinants of college drop-out and stop-out decisions, in a setting where students have imperfect information about their schooling ability. We estimate, using data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1997 (NLSY97), a dynamic structural model of schooling and work decisions, where students who graduated from high school decide at each period whether to attend college, either in a two or four-year institution, and to enter the labor market. A key feature of our approach is to account for learning over time, thus implying that some individuals may leave college as a result of the arrival of new information on their ability. Counterfactual simulations shed light on how effective different educational policies would be at decreasing college attrition rates.
