A Cost-Effectiveness Analysis of Reductions in School Expenditures: An Application of an Educational Production Function. Institute for Research on Poverty Discussion Papers.
This study describes a cost-effective approach to school resource allocations. It combines the cost and production function results in order to determine where cutbacks can be made, how resources should be relocated, whether certain resources should be increased, and whether certain changes need to be of large magnitude in order to be effective. Cost effective methods are applied to the school system. The study is based on various measures of input and output developed for grades three through six. This longitudinal study covered a three-year period (end of 1967/68-1970-71). The cost figures used in the analysis are based on the school year 1975-76 for the school district of Philadelphia. A list of specific conclusions, based on the cost effective analysis is included. (AM)
