Is More Better? The Impact of Postsecondary Education on the Economic and Social Well-Being of American Society. American Higher Education Report Series
Williams, Adriane; Swail, Watson Scott
Online Submission
This literature review attempts to discern whether more education is actually better for the individual and society. We investigate the literature and ask: What are the economic and non-economic returns to postsecondary education investments? Who reaps the benefits of those investments? And, most important, are there sufficient returns, both economic and non-economic, to the larger society to justify increasing public investment in higher education? (Contains 7 footnotes and 13 figures.) [This document was published by the Educational Policy Institute.]
