Contracting Out for Public School Support Services.
Lyons, James E.
Education and Urban Society, v27 n2 p154-67 Feb 1995
Views the use of private vendors as a way of cost reduction and efficiency improvement. It argues that contracting out for services reduces administrator overload, provides better technical expertise and economies of scale, and reduces supervisory work. Privatization also brings political implications involving employee job loss and service reliability, as well as the need for skilled contracting officers. (GR)
