Measuring the Impact of Competition in Local Government Education Markets on the Cognitive Achievement of Students.
Zanzig, Blair R.
Economics of Education Review, v16 n4 p431-41 Oct 1997
Examines the role of interjurisdictional competition among school districts, using 1970 California school districts and controlling for various educational inputs. Achievement scores rise as the local market becomes more competitive, until a threshold is reached, beyond which districts have no effect on achievement. Three to four districts per county are necessary to create a competitive market in education. (18 references) (MLH)
