Golladay, Fredrick L.; And Others
The first paper in this series, "Problems in the Econometric Analysis of Educational Technology," by Fredrick L. Golladay, examines the analogy between empirical production functions in economic research and the school characteristic study. The second paper, "Problems in Making Policy Inferences from the Coleman Report," by Glen Cain and Harold Watts, presents the theoretical bases for causally interpretable multivariate empirical research into education. The third paper, "Education and Income: A Study of Cross-Sections and Cohorts," by Robinson Hollister, summarizes research into the problems of conceptualization and the measurement of school characteristics, inputs, and outputs. The fourth paper, "Patterns of Rates of Return to Investment in Education: Some International Comparisons," by W. Lee Hansen, reviews briefly the statistical problems that emerge in school characteristic studies. The final paper, "The Search for Equity in the Provision and Finance of Higher Education," by W. Lee Hansen and Burton A. Weisbrod, summarizes the discussions and draws conclusions for the appropriate focus of research into resource allocation to and within education.
