Quasi-markets and school performance: evidence from a study of English secondary schools

R. Levacic, Philip Woods

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    The concurrence of stagnating budgets for education has tended to increase demands on education systems. This has resulted in the tightening of the financial bottleneck situation, and this begs the question of, what is the optimal use of available resources, and this query becomes increasingly urgent in these times.

    This volume documents the papers presented at an international economic conference, held in September 1999 at the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF) in Frankfurt am Main. The thematic range of situational descriptions and analysis (for example, for the development of productivity in the education sector) is discussed via controlled theoretical treatments. There is an evaluation of new control concepts for solving problems of improving the education finance statistics database, and experience with optimization models at the school site planning. The text is targeted at individuals from educational policy, educational administration, economics and education.
