In this video, Eric Hanushek  discusses the value of raising students’ cognitive skills and how this is crucial to boosting long-term economic growth.   The talk is based on a  book, The Knowledge Capital of Nations: Education and the Economics of Growth, co-authored by Eric Hanushek and Ludger Woessmann, which was published this spring.

For more on this topic, please read “Education and Economic Growth: It’s not just going to school, but learning something while there that matters,” by Hanushek, Woessmann, Dean T. Jamison, and Eliot A. Jamison, which appeared in the Summer 2008 issue of Education Next.
