Abstract

Behavioral/experimental economics is poised to enter a new phase in its relatively brief intellectual history, moving beyond empirical tests of standard behavioral assumptions in the social sciences to the problem of designing improved institutions that are tuned to fit real-world behavior. For this reason and others, it is worthwhile to analyze the potential value that new experiments could provide to the school choice debates by generating new data to settle longstanding questions.
