Special Issue "School Choice"
A special issue of Games (ISSN 2073-4336).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2021).
Matching and assignment theory models are largely motivated by real-world contexts such as office assignments, public school choice, organ exchanges and labor markets, and they typically offer centralized procedures designed to match the two sides of the market. A subfield of this area, that of "School Choice", is both an established and active research area that focuses on various aspects of student welfare and schools’ constraints. Controlled School Choice (where students have different socio-economic types, and schools use type-specific boundaries for different types of students,) experiments on school choice problems, issues with tie-breaking the rules of school choice mechanisms and dynamic school choice problems are some of the recent active areas within school choice. We welcome all theoretical, experimental and empirical papers within the area of school choice.
