Investing in the futures market? Think local.
Public education is a worthy investment with immense social and economic benefits. Today’s students are tomorrow’s workers, entrepreneurs, managers, professionals and leaders.
Research shows that individuals who graduate and have access to quality education throughout primary and secondary school are more likely to find gainful employment, have stable families, and be active and productive citizens. A good education provides substantial benefits to individuals and, as individual benefits are aggregated throughout the community, creates broad social and economic benefits.
- $1 spent on early childhood education saves up to $19 in remediation education, health are costs, welfare and penal expenses.
- The labor market benefits that accrue from student learning in a typical school day is 9 TIMES the cost of that day.
- High standardized test scores translate to greater earnings. In aggregate, this boosts the quality of life for everyone
