Educational Attainment and Resource Use: Mystery or Econometric Misspecification?
Mayston, David J.
Education Economics, v4 n2 p127-42 Aug 1996
Explores whether observed levels of educational attainment and expenditure per student are endogenously determined by schools' optimizing behavior in resource-allocation decisions, considering both supply- and demand-side factors. This process can generate patterns of expenditure per student in line with empirical findings. Difficulties with surmounting econometric problems do not necessarily indicate school inefficiency.
