Conference description: This conference brings together researchers working at the frontier of applying economic insights to education markets. Although education markets differ from more traditional markets in important ways, economists have developed new and exciting models and empirical methods to deepen our understanding of how these markets function and how they can function better. We look forward to two days of insightful and stimulating scholarship at the forefront of this important area of research.
