Steve Rivkin is working with the UChicago Consortium to study the variation in principal quality as measured by improvements in students’ test scores over time (e.g., principal value-added on student achievement), the pathways through which principals influence achievement (e.g., principal effects on teacher mobility), and the reward structure of the principal labor market.

Rivkin is a Professor and Head of the Department of Economics at the University of Illinois Chicago.  His research interests include teacher and principal quality and labor markets, charter schools, affirmative action, and school reforms in Central Europe.
