About the Education Economics Center

The Education Economics Center promotes the development of sound education policy by bringing data evidence to education decisions. Housed in the Coles College of Business, the center provides nonpartisan research and analysis for the evaluation and design of state and national education policy. Under the direction of director Ben Scafidi, the center explores education taxes, expenditures and resulting outcomes.

The center also undertakes research surrounding school choice including public, private and charter institutions, access to Advanced Placement courses, teachers and voter attitudes.
