Tuan D. Nguyen is an associate professor in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at Kansas State University. He applies rigorous quantitative methods to examine 1) the teacher labor markets, particularly looking at the factors that drive teacher attrition and retention, and 2) the effects and implications of teacher policies and education policies intended for social equity and school improvement.


Trained as a quantitative social scientist with an emphasis on causal inference and systematic reviews, he studies school improvement, education and teacher policy, teacher turnover, and postsecondary success. He applies rigorous quantitative methods (regression discontinuity designs, difference-in-differences, regression-based techniques, and meta-analysis) to examine the effects and unintended consequences of education policies, the barriers to persistence, and the effectiveness of policies designed to combat attrition, particularly for an equitable society. His K-12 research focuses on education policy, teacher policy and the teacher labor market, particularly looking at the factors that drive teacher attrition and retention and the reforms and policies intended to address these issues for social equity and school improvement.
