Higher Education’s Return on Investment Estimated for California

“Return on Investment: Educational Choices and Demographic Change in California’s Future” is available from The Campaign for College Opportunity.

California will receive a net return of $3 on every dollar it invests in getting more students in and through college above current levels, concludes a report from a higher education watchdog group in the state.

Each class of graduating high school seniors in such an “increased college-going scenario” would provide $3 billion for the state in additional tax revenues over their lifetimes, says the report from the Campaign for College Opportunity, which has offices in Oakland and Los Angeles.
