The Existentialist Reality of Educational Production Functions (Their Existence Has Preceded Their Essence).
This publication is a discussion of the concept of an educational production function, a mathematical formulation of the relationship between inputs and outputs in education. A description of how a production function can direct decision making toward economic efficiency precedes a theoretical discussion of the nature of actual estimation. Several statistical estimations which demonstrate the empirical counterpart of the theoretical discussions are made using one sample of data. The author concludes the paper with a summarization of the work. (Author/SHM)
