April Databases: Economics & Education

How does economics serve as a strong tool to tackle pressing issues and develop important policies in our schools and institutions, from pre-kindergarten, through to post-secondary education? What can we learn in applying economic concepts towards the greater understanding and improvement of education, domestic and international?

In April we focus on resources that support research and study in the field of Economics and Education, as we gear up for the next Everett Cafe book display, The Haves and Have Nots.
