ERG SES G12, Education, Management and Teachers' Practice
In this paper our question is, on the premises of sustainable development, whether investment in education promotes economic growth, or vice versa in Greek context. The explosive interest of students to pursue further with their studies, raises the question: "Is the world becoming more knowledged-based, or is it just a simple consumer-public god relationship?"
Over the last few decades several studies (i.e. Asteriou & Siriopoulos, 1997, Barro, 2001, Hanushek & Kimko, 2000, Krueger & Lindahl, 2000, Lee & Lee, 1995) have investigated the relation between education and economic growth. They found a positive correlation among GDP growth rate and education, mainly using evidence from advanced countries. Therefore, in an attempt to build a new signaling system, our concern is to examine the causal direction between GDP growth and educational variables in order to define which is a precondition for what, in other, advancing countries, as well.
