Examining School District Efficiency in Georgia
Houck, Eric A.; Rolle, R. Anthony; He, Jiang
Journal of Education Finance, v35 n4 p331-357 Spr 2010
This article examines the relative production efficiency of school districts in Georgia using the modified quadriform method. Overall, we find that the modified quadriform allows state-level policymakers to access a basic tool for analysis that makes relative comparison of school district productivity for use in policy analysis and policy development. While the results of this study are in line with studies in other states using the modified quadriform, we also note that performance in Georgia is tied to a host of community characteristics as well as the percentage of expenditures dedicated to instruction. (Contains 3 figures, 10 tables and 4 footnotes.)
