Why Governments Run Schools.
Brown, Byron W.
Economics of Education Review, v11 n4 p287-300 Dec 1992
Discusses problems of uncertainty and imperfect information that affect organizational choices for schools. Develops two models suggesting that schools, whether public or private, resemble each other while offering diverse curricula and outcomes. Considers the question of institutional choice by applying transaction cost economics to the options of public, nonprofit, and for-profit schools. (27 references) (MLH)
