Approaches to the Analysis of School Costs, an Introduction.
A review and general discussion of quantitative and qualitative techniques for the analysis of economic problems outside of education is presented to help educators discover new tools for planning, allocating, and evaluating educational resources. The pamphlet covers some major components of cost accounting, cost effectiveness, cost-benefit analysis, systems analysis, cost quality, and program budgeting. Given necessary modifications, these tools are found to have great potential in applications to education. While adoption of newer techniques is urged, the continued usefulness of older approaches is defended. (TT)
