An Economic Analysis
Routledge – 2002 – 272 pages
Series: Routledge Research in Education
Nick Adnett and Peter Davies develop an economic analysis of schooling markets, emphasizing both the strengths and weaknesses of orthodox analyses. They explain the economic and social contexts that have generated the widespread desire to reform state schooling and develop a systematic analysis of the key policy components examining both theory and international evidence. The authors employ a unique framework based upon economic analysis that is informed by research performed by educationalists and other social scientists. Markets for Schooling is designed to be accessible and of interest to all researchers, administrators and policy-makers concerned with education and economics.
