Higher Education Markets and Public Policy.
Dill, David D.
Higher Education Policy, v10 n3-4 p167-85 Sep-Dec 1997
This paper explores the nature of markets in higher education, the policy mechanisms related to their implementation, and questions regarding their impact. Various forms of market-oriented policy instruments now employed in many countries are reviewed including taxes, subsidies, and regulations. Potential problems limiting the impact of educational markets include insufficient information received by consumers, and immature consumers. (DB)
