Can we put a Price on Student Achievement?:
Financial Returns for Academic Success
February 15, 2017
5:30 – 6:00 pm Reception
6:00 – 7:30 pm Public Forum
Education policymakers generally agree that student achievement matters for those students’ life trajectories and for long-term national prosperity. But how much does it matter? By which measure: NAEP, state assessments, graduations rates? To which economic outcome: individual, state, or national productivity?
Is this economic calculus reasonable, and is it, further, actionable? Please join the Hopkins-Hunter Forum for Education Policy on the evening of February 15th for an inspiring conversation between two distinguished economists of education and David Steiner, former Commissioner of Education for New York State.
