Zen and the Art of Policy Analysis: A Response to Nielsen and Wolf
Meier, Kenneth J.
Polinard, J. L.
Wrinkle, Robert D.
Neilsen and Wolf (N.d.) lodge several criticism of Meier,
Wrinkle and Polinard (1999). Although most of the criticisms
deal with tangential issues rather than our core argument,
their criticisms are flawed by misguided estimation strategies,
erroneous results, and an inattention to existing theory and
scholarship. Our re-analysis of their work demonstrates
these problems and presents even stronger evidence for our
initial conclusion–both minority and Anglo students perform
better in schools with more minority teachers.
