Education and the Rationale of Cost-Benefit Analysis
Gilead, Tal
British Journal of Educational Studies, v62 n4 p373-391 2014
It is increasingly maintained that cost-benefit analysis (CBA) should play a greater role in educational policy-making. This article critically examines the rationale guiding CBA and its compatibility to educational settings. Drawing on philosophical discussions, it argues that the rationale guiding CBA has some fundamental limitations that render the use of it in education beneficial only under certain restrictive circumstances.
