The Money Value of Education. Bulletin, 1917, No. 22
Ellis, A. Caswell
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
The most valuable result of right education is the broadening, deepening, and refining of human life. This result can no more be measured by dollars and cents than truth, self-sacrifice, and love can be made out of pork and potatoes. While the higher things of the soul are priceless rewards which true education brings, they are not its only result. The material and measurable rewards of education should be made plain to those whose votes must determine the support of our educational system. Those who desire better support of that system should point out in terms that the people can understand and definite ways in which education promotes industrial efficiency and increases material wealth. That is the purpose of this bulletin. Contents of this bulletin include: (1) Letter of transmittal; (2) National wealth and power determined by education; (3) Education and individual success; (4) Salaries of college graduates; and (5) List of references on the money value of education. (Contains 15 figures.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
