The Center conducts economic research on the benefits and costs of alternative educational policies and interventions.

Education is a social investment that entails both costs and outcomes.

Too often assessments of educational alternatives either ignore their costs or calculate them in inappropriate ways. Similarly, benefits of education are often viewed too narrowly or measured inappropriately.

The CBCSE brings together scholarship on both benefits and costs so that the full value of investments in education can be evaluated, and the most productive use of resources can be chosen.

The Center also undertakes cost-effectiveness studies to ascertain the types of educational interventions that will produce educational outcomes at least cost.

The CBSCE is co-directed by Professors Henry Levin and Clive Belfield.

Dr. Levin is the William Heard Kilpatrick Professor of Economics and Education at Teachers College, Columbia University, and the David Jacks Professor Emeritus of Higher Education and Economics at Stanford University. He has published over 300 articles on the Economics of Education

Dr. Belfield is an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at Queens College, the City University of New York. He has published widely in the economics of education.
