What is the relationship between international test scores, investment in education, and economic growth rates? In “Higher Test Scores or More Schooling? Another Look at the Causes of Economic Growth,” Theodore Brenton concludes that higher test scores and more investment in schooling don’t necessarily result in higher economic growth rates.

He has published academic articles in the Journal of Socio-Economics, Education Economics, and Macroeconomic Dynamics(among others). Dr. Brenton received a PhD in Economics from George Mason University in 2003.
