Koedel’s Education Research Cited by White House

MU Economics

The most recent Economic Report of the President and Annual Report of the Council of Economic Advisors cites Mizzou Professor Cory Koedel’s work on for-profit colleges. Two of Koedel’s recent studies are included Chapter 5, “Building Stronger Postsecondary Institutions.” The theme of this portion of the report, supported by Koedel’s research, is that for-profit colleges produce subpar outcomes for their enrollees. On the use of his work in the report, Koedel said “I am glad to see my work informing such high-level discussions about key economic and education policy issues.”  Koedel is jointly appointed as a Professor in the Department of Economics and the Truman School of Government and Public Affairs.
