This registration outlines a pre-analysis plan for a list experiment on discrimination against migrant students among Chilean teachers. Specifically, we are interested in teachers’ bias against Haitian students. This experiment’s design is motivated by previous experimental studies showing that teachers have negative indirect attitudes towards ethnic and racial minority students (e.g., Glock and Böhmer 2018; Salas et al. 2017; Van Ewijk 2011). Moreover, some scholars have found that these attitudes negatively influence their educational outcomes (e.g., Alesina et al. 2018; Hinnerich, Höglin, and Johannesson 2015; Peterson et al. 2016; Sprietsma 2013).
This experiment contributes to the literature in three ways. First, list experiments have not been used to study the phenomena of educational inequality. Second, the application of list experiments in Latin America is scarce (e.g., Garay, Palmer-Rubin, and Poertner 2020; Vidigal 2018). Third, we include relevant covariables for the literature of ethnic and racial inequalities and educational studies.
