Educational cost analysis in action: case studies for planners by Philip H Coombs( Book )

32 editions published in 1972 in 3 languages and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document is the second in a series of three documents, which together contain 27 case studies on the uses of cost analysis in educational planning. The case studies are presented to help planners and administrators see how cost analysis can be used to improve the efficiency of their educational systems, or to get the best value existing resources. Topics examined in these eight case studies include the cost of introducing a reform in primary education in the Ivory Coast, the role of cost analysis in the 1962 reform of primary education in Madagascar, the use of educational cost models in planning the extension of compulsory education in Norway, marginal costs for marginal decisions about team teaching in Barbados, the role of cost analysis in planning a teacher-training program in Poland, and the costing of a program for expanded secondary education in Brazil. Other topics consider the use of cost-benefit analysis both as a guide to educational resource allocation in India and as a tool to compare the rates of return to education in Colombia. (Author/DN)

Future critical world issues in education : a provisional report of findings by Philip H Coombs( Book )

9 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and Spanish and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A review is presented of findings emerging from the International Council for Educational Development assessment of the world educational crisis. The assessment was made of education in both developed and developing countries and was geared toward finding the future status of education in the 1980s and the 1990s. An analysis is made of basic trends that are shaping education's future. Fundamental to many problems facing educators is a rapid growth in human learning needs. A great increase in the number of learners in the developing nations produces pressure to expand enrollments, while developed nations, despite low population growth, are experiencing increases in learning needs, especially on the part of older youths and adults. Exacerbating the problem of providing for larger educational demands are the factors of tightened economies, increasing bureaucratization and politicalization of education systems, deteriorating employment markets, and a weakening of international cooperation in the field of education. These basic trends are seen as having far-reaching future implications for all levels and types of education throughout the world. Within this broad context, an examination is made of six critical issues facing higher education. These issues are identified as: (1) adjustment to changing demands in developed and developing countries; (2) fading employment prospects for graduates; (3) a growing financial squeeze in all nations; (4) educational inequalities for minority groups and the economically deprived; (5) problems in planning, management, and governance; and (6) barriers to international and intercultural cooperation and understanding.

La crisis mundial de la educación by Philip H Coombs( Book )

11 editions published between 1971 and 1978 in Spanish and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El presente libro tiene dos objetivos primordiales. El primero consiste en reunir los hechos básicos de una visible crisis mundial en el terreno de la educación, explicitar las tendencias inherentes a estos hechos, y sugerir los elementos de una táctica a seguir ante ellos. El segundo objetivo está relacionado con el primero, pero va mucho más lejos. Pretende presentar un método para enfocar el sistema de educación, no como una serie de piezas sueltas donde cada faceta es un fragmento aislado, sino como un sistema en el que cada parte actuante emite sus propias "señales" para advertir si la acción conjunto se realiza de forma satisfactoria o no
