Health and education are the largest areas of state and local government financing—they are also two areas of spending with the potential to mitigate social inequity and poverty. This mini-conference will focus on applied research at the intersection of education and health. The conference will consider how changes in the economic, political, and public health environment affect equity in the educational system. Outcomes of interest could be tied to direct education performance measures or subsequent effects of education on criminal justice or labor force-related questions. Studies tied to educational outcomes for special education students will be of particular interest.
