The Economics of Nonformal Education: Resources, Costs and Benefits. Praeger Special Studies in International Economics and Development.
This book is part of a series of studies dealing with educational economics and the efficiency of various forms of education. This volume is concerned with the topic of nonformal education, particularly as it might be applied in developing nations that are still largely rural. The author does not attempt to develop a definitive economic analysis of nonformal education, but rather strives to clarify pertinent concepts and definitions and to indicate an approach to economic problems that will aid educational planners in solving operational problems. Individual chapters focus in turn on the socioeconomic context of nonformal education, educational resources, educational costs, economic benefits and cost effectiveness, and the uses of economic analysis.
