This article exploits a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the impact of an intensive, short-term inservice teacher training program on the performance of English teachers in Beijing migrant schools and their students. The results show no significant impacts of teacher training on either teacher or student English test scores and thus imply the ineffectiveness of short-term teacher training programs on teacher and student performance.
