Kentucky Long-Term Policy Research Center Conference 2007

Making Money Matter:
Maximizing Student Achievement
with Our Investments in Education

In any discussion of wise investments for Kentucky’s future, increasing spending on education is at the top of many policymakers’ priority lists. But how exactly should education funds be targeted in order to have the greatest impact? What specific expenditures will best help boost students’ academic achievement?

The Kentucky Long-Term Policy Research Center attempted to answer these questions and more at their recent conference. Now, thanks to KET, you can attend anytime (except real time) via the web.
