Does More School District Administration Lower Educational Productivity? Some Evidence on the "Administrative Blob" in New York Public Schools.
Brewer, Dominic J.
Economics of Education Review, v15 n2 p111-24 Apr 1996
Presents 1978-87 resource-allocation data for 700 New York State school districts to explore possible (district-level) relationships between administrative inputs and educational output (standardized test scores). Various statistical models show inconsistent results, providing weak support for the contention that administrative resources are necessarily detrimental to educational productivity.
