This study examines the relationship between taking advanced math courses in high school and labor force earnings 10 years after graduation. The authors theorize that students with more opportunity to take higher-level math courses have two good results, the increased chances of a richer high school curriculum resulting in higher graduation rates from college and increased cognitive ability and overall productivity. According to the authors, both factors correlate to higher earnings in later life.
