Description

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) was the staple of President Barack Obama’s administration and a signal that the United States was taking action to improve and provide better healthcare coverage for all of its citizens. ACA is composed of two legislative components – the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010. Commonly referred to as “Obamacare,” this act has created much controversy and has its fair share of critics. With the constant changes affecting the United States’ healthcare system, this spills over into other sectors of the economy, including education. The purpose of this term project is to analyze whether or not the Affordable Care Act of 2010 had any effects on individual states’ education systems. By examining variables (e.g. per capita income, percentage eligible for Medicaid and Medicare, poverty index), available data may indicate that a correlation exists between access to healthcare and quality of states’ education systems.
