This dissertation consists of three studies in the economics of education and experimental economics. In Chapter 1, I address a debate in the literature about the effects of measures of school quality on labor market earnings. Using individual-level data, previous studies find no effects of measures of school quality and a subsequent study argues that the result is driven by the sample that includes mainly young individuals. I use recent NLSY79 Geocode data that provides extended earnings observations including prime-age earnings. I find that the percentage of teachers with a Master's degree has a positive long-run effect on individuals' earnings in the labor market.
