Do children spend too much time in schools? Evidence from a longer school year in Indonesia
Economics of Education Review Volume 41, Number 1, ISSN 0272-7757 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
I examine the effects of a longer school year in Indonesia on grade repetition, educational attainment, employability, and earnings. I exploit an arbitrary rule that assigned students to a longer school year in Indonesia in 1978–1979, which fits a fuzzy regression discontinuity design. I find the longer school year decreases the probability of grade repetition and increases educational attainment; it also increases the probability of working in formal sectors and wages later in life. These results suggest the length of school years in Indonesia is not too long.
