An Econometric Perspective on Classroom Reading Instruction. Research Series No. 22.
Brown, Byron W.; Saks, Daniel H.
Elements of economic production theory are applied to the relation between time and student learning. The analysis takes into account that individual students matter, that students are often taught in classes, and that jointness in production is the rule rather than the exception. The values teachers place on the different possible educational outcomes are shown to be indispensible to understanding production. Some basic conclusions about the nature of accountability are derived. (Author)
