Education Week: More Education Studies Look at Cost-Effectiveness
Introducing new interventions and learning supports alone may not be enough to activate and sustain student motivation, which is why foundations, policymakers and research agencies want to make understanding the cost of education programs straightforward. Of this shift to include estimated program costs with intervention research, Dr. A. Brooks Bowden tells Education Week, "I'm not doing this work because I'm . . . interested in finance. I want to understand how we can better serve our students, what's working for them, how we make sure they're getting the resources that are effective. And this is a critical piece of that."
