Educational Cost-Benefit Analysis.
Hough, J. R.
Education Economics, v2 n2 p93-128 1994
Educational cost-benefit analysis, as practiced in both industrialized and developing nations, has been much criticized. Manpower planning, the principal alternative, has received even harsher criticism. The two approaches should be combined in empirically based projects that study recent graduates and chart their subsequent employment progress. Such research could help validate cost-benefit studies and increase confidence in the effectiveness of educational planning. (87 references) (MLH)
