Should We Put Lotteries for Education on the Honor Roll or in the Corner?
AbstractMany states have passed lotteries for education in the hopes of increasing education funding and ultimately improving educational outcomes. This paper looks at real per capital state and local direct education spending and finds strong evidence that lotteries for education have increased per capita education spending in those states that passed a lottery for education between 1978 and 2000. Further evidence in the paper suggests that money flowing into state and local budgets from a new source such as a lottery will be used to fund new spending, tax cuts, and deficit reduction.
