Education Production and Investments in Schoolingin the Short, Medium, and Long Run


In a typical human capital production setup, there are two inputs: innate ability and investments by parents and schools. These investments take the form of school funding, teacher quality, and school resources, and have immense long-term payoffs. In this talk, Prof. Kendall Kennedy (Mississippi State University) will discuss the research on how school inputs benefit students at all stages of their life: in the short run through test scores and attendance, in the medium run through educational attainment and college attendance, and in the long run through wages and employment. He will conclude by discussing his new work in progress on measuring the full lifecycle returns to school inputs, using a newly created historical data source from the US in the early 20th century.
