Resource Allocation and Productivity in Education: Theory and Practice

Synopsis

While much of the research on resource allocation in the past has been concerned with state and national decisions, this book focuses on resource allocation decisions at the micro-level in education. Decisions made at the district, school, and classroom levels determine the adequacy and equity of resources actually made available to educational programs and individual students. This book shows how and why these decisions are made and their impact on schools and students.
