Helping Struggling Students and Benefiting All: Peer Effects in Primary Education
We exploit the randomized evaluation of a remedying education intervention that improved the reading skills of low-performing third grade students in Colombia, to study whether providing educational support to low-achieving students affects the academic performance of their higher-achieving classmates. We find that the test scores of non-treated children in treatment schools increased by 0.108 of a standard deviation compared to similar children in control schools. We interpret the reduced-form effect on higher-achieving students as a spillover effect within treated schools. We then estimate a linear-in-means model of peer effects, finding that a one-standard-deviation increase in peers' contemporaneous achievement increases individual test scores by 0.679 of a standard deviation. We rule out alternative explanations coming from a reduction in class size. We explore several mechanisms, including teachers' effort, students' misbehavior, and peer-to-peer interactions. Our findings show that policies aimed at improving the bottom of the achievement distribution have the potential to generate social-multiplier effects that benefit all.

Teacher Hiring Instruments and Teacher Value Added: Evidence from Peru
In this article, we explore whether the evaluation instruments used to recruit teachers in the national teacher hiring process in Peru are good predictors of teacher effectiveness. To this end, we estimate teacher value-added (TVA) measures for public primary school teachers in 2018 and test for their correlation with the results of the 2015 and 2017 national evaluations. Our findings indicate that among the three sub-tests that comprise the first, centralized stage of the process, the curricular and pedagogical knowledge component has the strongest (and significant) correlation with the TVA measure, while the weakest correlation is found with the reading comprehension component. At the second, decentralized stage, we find no significant correlation with our measures of TVA for math, as well as non-robust correlations for the professional experience and classroom observation evaluation instruments. A positive and significant correlation is found between the classroom observation component and TVA for reading. Moreover, we find correlations between our measure of TVA and several teacher characteristics: TVA is higher for female teachers and for those at higher salary levels while it is lower for teachers with temporary contracts (compared to those with permanent positions).

Educar en tiempos de pandemia: Un nuevo impulso para la transformación digital del sistema educativo en la Argentina
La incorporación de tecnologías digitales a los procesos de enseñanza y aprendizaje tiene un enorme potencial para ampliar las oportunidades de que los niños, niñas, adolescentes y jóvenes desplieguen trayectorias escolares completas, extensas y densas en aprendizajes. Desde mediados de 2020, debido a las medidas para la contención de la circulación del COVID-19, el sistema educativo migró masivamente al espacio digital para impulsar respuestas de emergencia para sostener la continuidad pedagógica. Desde entonces, las políticas educativas digitales, en marcha desde hacía más de dos décadas, recibieron un impulso insospechado. La nota hace foco en las respuestas educativas de emergencia vinculadas con la digitalización del sistema educativo argentino en el 2020. Su propósito es ofrecer información relevante para caracterizar las tendencias recientes e identificar su potencial y áreas de mejora para consolidar políticas digitales sistémicas que contribuyan, en el corto plazo, a potenciar los modelos de educación híbrida y, en el mediano plazo, a transformar el tiempo escolar en una experiencia más disfrutable y enriquecedora que impulse el aprendizaje dialógico, crítico y en profundidad para cada estudiante.
