Summary: (CIT): 2015-2016 BSSR Lecture Series. This research project examines the long-term productivity of education spending, with emphasis on the health returns of educational investments throughout the life course. The project aims to uncover the relationships between segregation, school spending, educational attainment, and students’ short-and long-run health outcomes and identify the causal chain that links measures of school quality and adult health. The three major policy changes this research exploits to identify significant changes in school spending include desegregation, school finance reform, and Head Start, for cohorts born since 1950. The health returns to educational investments have received less attention than the traditional focus on short-run test scores and more recently, labor market returns. This is an important omission, given that the return to education in terms of health is about half of the return to education on earnings (Cutler and Lleras-Muney, 2008; Johnson, 2011). An aim of this project is to uniquely fill the research gap by linking data on early childhood education through K-12 school resource inputs with data on adult health and SES attainment outcomes. This work aims to improve our understanding of the long-run economic and health returns to access to high- vs low-quality K-12 school systems.
