America’s expenditure in providing free quality education is steadily rising—while the quality of public school education appears to deteriorate at an alarming pace. How did this happen? In this brief book by veteran educator Donald P. Lade, the most pressing problems of the American public educational system are succinctly tackled and discussed. Diseconomies of Scale in Public Education: A Rational for School Vouchers, a non-fiction work released through Xlibris, presents a startling revelation of the over-budgeting and redundant spending that goes on in the American public educational system.
Diseconomies of Scale in Public Education: A Rational for School Vouchers insightfully answers the most pressing questions regarding good governance in America’s public education system by waging a deep-probing examination of the system’s budgeting problems. The highly informative, highly practical non-fiction work analyzes, in deep detail, the decades of budgeting by public school districts—covering topics of funding and allocation, economic climates, and expansion programs. A thoroughly studied subject in this book is the budgeting for school district infrastructures. This underlines the need for school vouchering, which will allow transparency to ensure cost-effective quality education in the public schools.
Using historical facts and figures, Diseconomies of Scale in Public Education: A Rational for School Vouchers presents explicit points of excess budgeting in America’s school system. The unprecedented revelations in Lade’s book contain enough convincing data to call for more disclosure on America’s spending for free quality education.
This book will be featured at this year’s Pennsylvania Library Association Book Exhibit in Lancaster, PA on October 24-27, 2010 and in New England Library Association Book Exhibit in Boxborough, MA on October 17-19, 2010.
