Cost-effectiveness analysis : methods and applications by Henry M Levin( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why should applied researchers be concerned with cost-effectiveness analysis? Answer: Because it will enable them to discover if a particular program or policy has attained maximum effectiveness for a given budget. Designed so that an individual can utilize this book as part of an informal course of self-study or in a formal course on the subject, Levin and McEwan provide readers with the step-by-step methods to plan and implement a cost-analysis study. Through the use of numerous examples drawn from the applied literature, the authors explain, demonstrate and illustrate the four major techniques of cost analysis: cost-effectiveness, cost-benefit, cost-utility, and cost-feasibility. They examine issues that are pertinent to the choice of analysis and its implementation; the nature of costs, including how to identify, measure, and distribute costs; measuring effectiveness, utility, and benefits; and, lastly the challenges to incorporating cost evaluations in the decision making process. In-depth exercises are included at the end of each chapter to enable readers to sharpen their ability to evaluate policy options and program effectiveness. The authors also provide readers with recommended readings at the end of chapters and a comprehensive bibliography of methodological sources on cost analysis and educational cost studies at the end of the book. This book will enable readers to reduce the costs of reaching particular objectives, and expand what can be accomplished for any particular budget or resource constraint."--Publisher's description

Between public and private : politics, governance, and the new portfolio models for urban school reform by Katrina E Bulkley( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines an innovative approach to school district management that has been adopted by a number of urban districts in recent years: a 'portfolio management model', in which 'a central office overseas a portfolio of schools offering diverse organizational and curricular themes, including traditional public schools, private organizations, and charter schools.' This book examines crucial issues related to portfolio management, gauges both the promise and potential pitfalls of the model, considers important contexts for assessing these ambitious efforts to reform district management, and offers in-depth cases of four urban districts- Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, and New Orleans- that have pioneered this new model. -- from Back Cover

Educational reform for disadvantaged students : an emerging crisis by Henry M Levin( Book )

2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressing the problems of the educationally disadvantaged requires specifically focused educational reforms. This paper: (1) describes the population of disadvantaged students in terms of its composition, growth, and educational performance; (2) reviews the dire consequences of ignoring the educational needs of these students; (3) discusses the failure of current educational reforms to address their special needs; (4) sets an agenda for filling that gap; and (5) discusses implications for policy, strategy, and action. The proportion of disadvantaged students--including those in poverty and those whose chances of educational success are handicapped due to linguistic and cultural obstacles--is increasing and the degree of their disadvantage is rising. Unless the nation responds to the imminent crisis, deleterious consequences will include: (1) a two-tiered society, leading to (2) serious political conflict and potential social disruption, (3) long-term deterioration in the quality of the labor force, and (4) escalated costs for public assistance and criminal justice. Reform strategies must enrich the preschool experience, augment home and school resources, and assist students with limited English proficiency. All levels of government and other constituencies must adhere to a policy agenda which includes the establishment of goals, accountability, resources, and technical assistance. (Ets)
