Browse studies from a growing body of international, interdisciplinary research on the countless benefits of investing in education:

“Gains from school occur from being in a job that not only pays more but also offers more opportunities for self-accomplishment, social interaction, and independence… Better decision-making skills learned in school also lead to better health, happier marriages, and more successful children. Schooling also encourages patience and long-term thinking. Teen fertility, criminal activity, and other risky behaviours decrease with it. Schooling promotes trust and civic participation. It teaches students how to enjoy a good book and manage money.” -“Priceless: The Nonpecuniary Benefits of Schooling,” Journal of Economic Perspectives (2011)
