Studies have shown school funding influences not just learning and achievement, but also educational attainment, earnings, crime and poverty. If additional education dollars affect student outcomes beyond the classroom and into adulthood, how should this shape the way we think about such investments? How can funding become more equitable to ensure better outcomes for all? It’s a question of particular importance as schools tap federal relief funds to help children recover from the pandemic.
