UW-Madison's Claudia Persico co-authored a study used by the New York Times in a recent report about the relationship between spending and education quality. Persico is an assistant professor with the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis. The researchers "examined outcomes for about 15,000 people, born between 1955 and 1985, and found that for poor children, a 10 percent increase in per-pupil spending each year of elementary and secondary school was associated with wages that were nearly 10 percent higher, a drop in the incidence of adult poverty and roughly six additional months of schooling."
