Description

In the past decade economics of education has expanded rapidly into new areas of research and has deepened and changed its analysis of traditional areas, such as educational finance, the production of knowledge, the relation between education and economic growth, and educational economics and the net. Theories have been significantly modified and new concepts have appeared which require synthesis and analysis, and naturally necessitate regularized topical publications geared to the audiences that need the data.

This anthology will serve as a current, topical reference resource on economics in education, replacing the various information sources that academics must currently use. This work will be of value not only to specialists in education finance, educational administration, economic departments, government agencies and research corporations involved in educational, human resource, and economic development issues, but also to all educational researchers and anyone with a general interest in education.
