Quality of Public Education based on the State’s Economics
MetadataShow full item record
It is proposed that the economic conditions of a state can explain the quality of public education in that state. The GDP per capita, personal income per capita, and poverty levels for each state are observed to evaluate the economic conditions, and an average ranking is observed to determine the quality of education in each state. Both simple and multiple regression analyses are conducted to determine the relationship between the dependent variable and the independent variables. The analysis shows a positive relationship between economic conditions and quality of education in a state.
