Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship of education and economic growth, investment in education to increase human development and economic growth, and the role of education in promoting economic well-being. We are specifically interested in how previous research investigated the robustness of the relationship between education and economic outcomes, the association between the returns to college and the decision to attend college, human capital as an engine of economic growth for technological change, and the economic impact of schools.
