    Pay For Success Social Impact Finance A PKSE Bond Example to Increase School Readiness and Reduce Special Education Costs Experts have long believed that the high economic returns on sound early childhood programs means it should be possible to pay for such programs with so called invest in kid bonds a form of social impact finance that would pay income and repay invested capital from the proceeds of the economic gains from high quality early childhood programs The field of pay for success social impact finance has been evolving for over a decade and transactions are taking many forms This paper reviews the economic research statutory and contractual and community involvement standards that would need to be met in order to apply social impact finance in early childhood programs Particular attention is given to implementation challenges in jurisdictionally and demographically complex urban regions To aid understanding a specific program concept is examined in detail The paper presents an operational example of how social impact bonds might be used to pay for early learning to increase school readiness paid for by lower public school special education costs These pay for pre k to reduce special ed costs are called PKSE peek

  • A General Equilibrium Theory of College with Education Subsidies, In-School Labor Supply, and Borrowing Constraints | Becker-Friedman Institute Research Respository
    subsidies broad based merit based and flat tuition grant subsidies broad based and merit based and loan limit restrictions We develop a quantitative theory of college within the context of general equilibrium overlapping generations economy College is modeled as a multi period risky investment with endogenous enrollment time to degree and dropout behavior Tuition costs can be financed using federal grants student loans and working while at college We show that our model accounts for the main statistics regarding education enrollment rate dropout rate and time to degree while matching the observed aggregate wage premiums Our model predicts that broad based tuition subsidies and grants increase college enrollment However due to the correlation between ability and financial resources most of these new students are from the lower end of the ability distribution and eventually dropout or take longer than average to complete college Merit based education policies counteract this adverse selection problem but at the cost of a muted enrollment response Our last policy experiment highlights an important interaction between the labor supply margin and borrowing A significant decrease in enrollment is found to occur only when borrowing constraints are severely tightened and the option to work while in school
