Public Education Resources and Pupil Performance Models.
Spottheim, David; And Others
This report details three models quantifying the relationships between educational means (resources) and ends (pupil achievements) to analyze resource allocation problems within school districts: (1) the Pupil Performance Model; (2) the Goal Programming Model; and (3) the Operational Structure of a School and Pupil Performance Model. These models reduce educational data to manageable equations through the application of educational economic concepts and quantitative methods. They can be used to address two of New York state's major educational policy predicaments: (1) What is the best composition of financial resources (by function) to produce predetermined levels of educational ends in a given type of school district while considering its pupil and community attributes? and (2) What administrative adjustments can be implemented by a given educational jurisdiction to attain some predetermined (and unified) educational goals for an array of pupils with diverse attributes? A 33-item bibliography is included. (BS)
