IZA DP No. 15082: The Long-Run Effects of College Remedial Education

published in: Economics Letters, 2022, 2016, 110613.

We investigate the long-run impact of college remedial education on students' academic performance and employment status. By implementing a Fuzzy Regression Discontinuity Design we show that attending remedial courses positively affects the probability to get a university degree, whereas no significant effect is found on labour market outcomes.
