Improving Florida’s middle and high school math achievement would have a statewide economic impact – even better than college football (Go figure)

In an op-ed published throughout the state (including in the Tallahassee Democrat), Florida TaxWatch CEO Dominic Calabro pointed out that college football has a significantly positive economic impact in the state.

After reading Dominic’s piece, just for fun I googled “math achievement economic impact”.  And I found this article in the Summer 2016 issue of Education Next by a group led by Hoover Institution fellow Eric Hanushek.

I was so tickled with my find that I wrote a response to Dominic’s piece.  The Democrat was gracious enough to post it here.
