Hanushek on Education

The Risk Disclosure Problem, R... Happiness, I Still Can't Get N...

In the latest podcast, Russ Roberts interviews Eric Hanushek. Hanushek describes some natural experiments in education with statistical properties that I can actually understand. In a number of cases judges interpreted state constitutions as requiring states to increase funding for education, particularly in weaker school districts.

Presumably, these sudden increases in spending should be followed by improvements in educational outcomes. Hanushek says that they are not.
