Recommended reading on teacher effectiveness

I met with one of the authors of the report linked below, Tara Beteille, here in Delhi last year 2010  at the World Bank. I was very impressed by her research into the links between teacher absenteeism and local political support in India. Here is more from her team found at http://schoolchoice.in/blog/?p=4322" In this paper, we use value-added methods to examine the relationship between a school’s effectiveness and the recruitment, assignment, development and retention of its teachers." By  Susanna Loeb, Demetra Kalogrides and Tara Béteille. http://www.nber.org/papers/w17177.pdf
