CInSt Research Seminar "The effects of communist indoctrination: Evidence from two educational reforms in Poland": Jorge García-Hombrados (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid)

Event ended

Jorge García-Hombrados is going to present a joint paper with Joan Costa-Font and Anna Nicinska "The effects of communist indoctrination: Evidence from two educational reforms in Poland" on CInSt online research seminar on June 4th.

This paper documents the perverse effects of communist indoctrination on labour market outcomes and human capital investments. To achieve this goal, we investigate the impacts of two educational reforms in Poland. Firstly, we show that, unlike in East Germany (Fuchs-Schündeln and Masella, 2016), the school reform that followed the fall of the communist regime in Poland had little effects on labour market outcomes or human capital. We argue the null effects of this reform are driven by the small load of indoctrination in the Polish educational system in the 80's. Secondly, we examine and document the beneficial effects of the school reform that reduced significantly communist indoctrination in school from school year 1954-55.
