Education and the Economy: Boosting the Nation's Economy by Improving High School Graduation Rates
Alliance for Excellent Education
Building on its previous work examining education and the economy, the Alliance for Excellent Education (the Alliance), with generous support from State Farm[R], analyzed the economies of all fifty states and the District of Columbia to determine the economic benefits that states could see by improving high school graduation rates. Using a sophisticated economic model developed by Economic Modeling Specialists Inc., an economics firm specializing in socioeconomic impact tools, the Alliance calculated economic projections for each state. The findings presented in this document clearly demonstrate that the best economic stimulus package is a high school diploma. (Contains 4 footnotes.)
