Economics in Education.
Cresap, McCormick, and Paget, Inc., New York, NY.
Ways in which the nation's schools could make economies, without sacrificing the quality of education, were investigated. Opportunities to achieve economies were identified in three broad areas: (1) The instruction of pupils, including the utilization of teachers and other professional instructional personnel; (2) The delivery of administrative support services, including pupil transportation, food services, operation and maintenance of physical plant, and others; and (3) The construction and utilization of school facilities. This report describes cost-saving opportunities in each area, reviews their applicability to particular sizes or kinds of school districts, and makes estimates of their potential to reduce, or at least slow, the rise in overall national educational costs.
