Planning for Educational Development in a Planning, Programming, Budgeting System.
Mushkin, Selma J.; Cleaveland, James R.
This document discusses planning for educational development by means of a Planning, Programming, Budgeting System. A PPB system is defined and its basic operation is described. Various ways in which the broader purposes of governments may be classified in terms of their objectives are presented with emphasis on how the learning objective might fit into a program structure for government. With this background, a PPB system is applied to education as cost effectiveness analysis for learning. Cost effectiveness analysis is defined, measurement of alternative program costs and program effectiveness is described, and the relationship of the two elements is explored. An illustrative example of the process of cost effectiveness analysis is appended. (TT)
