Program Budgeting and the School Administrator: A Review of Dissertations and Annotated Bibliography. Review Series, Number Two.
Piele, Philip K.; Bunting, David G.
This paper reviews the research findings of recent doctoral dissertations on program budgeting in education and describes the practical applications of these findings for school administration. Organized in nine chapters, the review discusses the problems and shortcomings associated with both traditional and program budgeting techniques, and describes the positive and negative reactions of administrators who have had experience with program budgeting. The introductory chapter provides an illustration of the basic principles of program budgeting. Chapters eight and nine include specific examples of the use of program budgeting in comparing, allocating, and planning the costs of educational objectives. The annotated bibliography lists 22 relevant dissertations received by Dissertation Abstracts from 1964 to 1968. (JH)
