One of the principal challenges for states and localities is to find ways to promote more employment in high-value work. The evidence reviewed in Smart Money: Education and Economic Development demonstrates that high-quality education and workforce preparation, while not sufficient, is a necessary condition for meeting this challenge. Without high-quality school system or a pool of skilled workers, however, communities will have a difficult time becoming centers for high-value economic activity.
The study concludes that state policy makers can raise the rate of return on their economic development and education dollars by developing a 21st century tax base, terminating ineffective incentive programs, and spending available dollars on high-yield education programs.
