UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY YOUTH SUBSTANCE USE AND HUMAN CAPITAL FORMATION In this chapter, I use data on school assignments and outcomes of students across
schools within different metropolitan housing markets to assess parents revealed
preferences. To preview the results, I find little evidence that parents use Tiebout choice to
select effective schools over those with desirable peers, or that schools are on average more
effective in markets that offer more choice.

AD Nil NISTRATORS’ PERCEPTIONS OF INTERNAL AUDITING ROLES AND EFFECTIVENESS IN TEXAS AND BIG TWELVE PUBLIC UNIVERSITIES These coordination failures are less likely in markets with
more interjurisdictional competition, as in these markets there are always alternative districts
that are relatively similar in the peer group offered, and parents are able to select effective
schools without paying a steep price in reduced peer quality.
.....RACE AND GENDER DIHERENCES EN EDUCATIONAL ATTAINMENT, HILD OF STUDY, AND [NCREMENTS TO EARNINGS (EVIDENCE FROM UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS TRACER STUDIES AND NATIONWIDE EARNINGS DATA) Even at the upper
extreme of the estimated confidence intervals, the SAT gap between more- and less-desirable

In the spring of 1879 I gave at the Old South Meeting-house in Boston a course of lectures on the discovery
and colonization of America, and presently, through the kindness of my friend Professor Huxley, the course
was repeated at University College in London. The lectures there were attended by very large audiences, and

and treat of some of the philosophical aspects of my subject in a course of lectures at the Royal Institution.

The structure of this book remains essentially the same as that of the ﬁrst edition. The
most obvious difference is the collapsing of chapters 11 and 12 into one (adjectival and
adverbial groups), leaving 12 (prepositions and the prepositional phrase) as the ﬁnal
