Abstract: We study the peer effects of English Learners on the test scores of native English speaking students using a new instrument to account for the endogeneity of students’ English Learner status. Relative to what OLS estimates would suggest, we find smaller and insignificant peer effects of English Learners on native English speaking students in California elementary schools.
