COST-BENEFIT ANALYSIS OF EDUCATION.
MOOD, ALEXANDER M.; POWERS, RICHARD
DIFFICULTIES ARE ENCOUNTERED WHEN COST-BENEFIT ANALYSES ARE APPLIED TO EDUCATION. THERE ARE PROBLEMS IN THE ATTEMPT TO DEFINE AN EDUCATIONAL GOAL AND IN THE ANALYSIS OF EDUCATIONAL PROCESSES. THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IS NOW ENGAGED IN A MULTITUDE OF PROJECTS DESIGNED TO COORDINATE RESEARCH IN EDUCATIONAL IMPROVEMENT. THIS ENTAILS CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT OF EDUCATIONAL, INFORMATION GATHERING SYSTEMS WHERE BUDGET PROGRAMING IS EXTENSIVELY USED. A THIRD PROBLEM ARISES IN THE MEASUREMENT OF COSTS. DESPITE DIFFICULTIES INVOLVED, OPTIMISM EXISTS TOWARD THE PROSPECT OF DEVELOPING A COMPREHENSIVE QUANTITATIVE MODEL OF THE AMERICAN EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM. THIS PAPER WAS PRESENTED AT THE WASHINGTON OPERATIONS RESEARCH COUNCIL'S COST-EFFECTIVENESS SYMPOSIUM (2D, MARCH 13-14, 1967). (HW)
