Scale Economies in Public Education: Evidence from School Level Data.
Bowles, Tyler J.; Bosworth, Ryan
Journal of Education Finance, v28 n2 p285-300 Fall 2002
Begins with a discussion of cost and efficiency in education. Presents an empirical model to estimate school-level economies of scale. Applies model to expenditure data set by school from 17 Wyoming school districts. Finds that it costs more per student in a small school than in large schools to achieve similar educational outcomes, thus confirming economies-of-scale effects. (Contains 26 references.) (PKP)
