Topic K-12

Education has long been viewed as the “great equalizer,” yet educational opportunity in the United States varies dramatically depending a family’s income. Equitable Growth’s work on K-12 education includes work on the role of school finance in equalizing opportunity and outcomes, as well as the potential synergies between investments in early childhood and later investments in K-12 education.
