While headlines question the value of a college degree, research continues to show a positive return on investment for credential completers. A recent Florida TaxWatch analysis found the benefits of earning a postsecondary credential is also good for communities, taxpayers, and the state.
In their recently published analysis “Independent Assessment of the Economic Impacts of the Florida College System,” Florida TaxWatch, supported by a grant from the Helios Education Foundation, found that for every $1 invested, taxpayers fully recovered their original investment and reap an additional return of $5.80. Florida TaxWatch’s Robert Weissert will share highlights of their report, including how investments in the Florida College System benefits students, taxpayers and the state.
In this webinar you will learn:
- How the analysis was conducted
- How Florida’s investment compares to other states
- How this analysis can help inform policy solutions, community investments and student decision making
