Return on investment.

On April 11, Secretary Duncan testified on the Administration's continued investments in education before the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies. "The big takeaway message here is that education is more than a set of numbers on the ledger line," he stressed. "Education is not just an expense--it's an investment. In fact, it is one of the most critical investments in the future that we, as a nation, can make. America cannot win the race for the future without investing in education. ..." The Secretary sketched out some important progress made during the President's first term, highlighted urgent educational challenges that remain, and talked about the ROI--the return on investment in education spending--with special emphasis on the President's pre-school plan. He also summarized other core elements of the President's 2014 education budget.
