Educational Cost Analysis in Action: Case Studies for Planners -- III.
Coombs, Philip H.; Hallak, Jacques
This document is the third in a series of three documents, which together contain 27 case studies on the uses of cost analysis in educational planning. The case studies have been presented to help planners and administrators see how cost analysis can be used to improve the efficiency of their educational systems, and to get the best value from their existing resources. Topics examined in these case studies include using cost analysis to improve the efficiency of school building in the United Kingdom, planning in university systems in Canada, the costs of secondary education in Morocco, improving efficiency in the utilization of teachers in technical education, comparative costs and efficiency in full-time and part-time education in the USSR, and programing annual current and capital expenditures during the planning period in Hungary. Three case studies dealing with Uganda consider an evaluation of educational costs, the behavior of nonteacher recurring expenditures, and the use of cost evaluation in the planning of a university college.
