Education

Main content start

Education is one of the biggest factors in determining a person鈥檚 economic outcome. And the trajectory for high- or low-wage workers doesn鈥檛 begin in college, or even high school. Starting in preschool, the youngest learners are set on an educational path that can have a profound impact on their earning potential as adults. At SIEPR, researchers draw on their economic expertise to study how people invest in education, and how educational opportunities evolve due to policy and competition.  SIEPR scholars also quantify the effects that education has on other important outcomes in developed and developing nations around the world.
