  • Robert Kaestner: Good education policy is good health policy | Institute of Government and Public Affairs
    fail to graduate high school each year The situation is even worse in Chicago where 35 percent of Chicago Public School students do not graduate Data show that people who have a high school diploma can expect to live on average six or seven years longer than high school dropouts Consider the potential loss of life associated with these dropout rates Multiplying those 30 000 students who drop out annually by 6 5 years the average life expectancy loss for a dropout yields nearly 200 000 lost years of life That s right 200 000 lost years of life for high school dropouts in Illinois Every year And this burden is not shared equally as a disproportionate number of dropouts come from black Hispanic and poor families That s the bad news the very bad news But the good news is that the state can invest at potentially no cost in making sure kids graduate saving hundreds of thousands of years of life annually by doing so How can this be People with a high school diploma earn about 10 000 more per year than those who drop out Because of the lower earnings the state loses 200 per year in income tax revenue Over a 45 year period this yearly loss to the state in taxes represents a present value of nearly 5 000 per dropout So if the state spent 5 000 or less to prevent a child from dropping out then this investment would be revenue neutral or even revenue increasing And this calculation does not even factor in the savings to the state that would come from reduced Medicaid spending because of better health and reduced spending on other social programs that occurs as people become better educated More importantly this 5 000 state investment in

  • Richard Dye and Rick Winkel: Illinois’ fiscal situation is worse than you know | Institute of Government and Public Affairs
    the University of Illinois to provide objective non partisan forward looking analysis of the state s budget situation Our model of the state budget projects past revenue and spending patterns into the future Key to our analysis is sustainable revenue inflows of tax collections and other receipts not counting one time sources like borrowing For decades Illinois has spent billions of dollars more each year than its revenue flows could sustain and issued IOUs to cover the difference There are three key elements of the resulting mess First there is still a big gap between spending and sustainable revenue Our model projects a deficit of 6 billion for FY2016 Eliminating this gap would require cuts on the order of 12 5 percent of all spending or tax increases of 12 percent of all state source revenue Second Illinois tax structure yields too little revenue growth over time compared to spending Our model projects a deficit growing from 6 billion in FY2016 to 14 billion in FY2025 Even if painful actions are taken to balance the budget in one year deficits will reemerge and force additional tough choices Third the accumulated pile of IOUs represent an enormous claim on future revenues Illinois has unfunded liabilities of at least 100 billion for pensions plus 34 billion for retiree health and another 4 5 billion in unpaid bills Every dollar used to pay off past IOUs means one less to spend on current year programs Taxpayer voters should be wary of easy sounding solutions Reduce pension and or retiree healthcare costs Constitutional protections for benefits already promised retirees make this very difficult Increase economic growth to generate more tax revenue But how Economic evidence suggests there is not much a state government can do to increase overall economic activity Also the cost of
