That's Equivalent to Having 25 1 SD Higher VA Teachers (according to Chetty, Friedman and Rockoff)

David Kirp:

Not only were they more successful in school, they were more successful in life as well. A 2011 study by the Berkeley public policy professor Rucker C. Johnson concludes that black youths who spent five years in desegregated schools have earned 25 percent more than those who never had that opportunity. Now in their 30s and 40s, they’re also healthier — the equivalent of being seven years younger.

Or maybe it is exactly the same thing.
