Background

Subset selection is a valuable tool for interpretable learning, scientific discovery, and data compression. However, classical subset selection is often eschewed due to selection instability, computational bottlenecks, and lack of post-selection inference.

Our analysis provides unique insights into the combination of environmental, socioeconomic, and demographic factors that predict educational outcomes, and features highly competitive prediction with remarkable stability.
