The Costs Of Recurrent Education, Phil Mckenzie Apr 1984

The Costs Of Recurrent Education, Phil Mckenzie

Dr Phillip McKenzie

This paper addresses the subject of the likely costs of a particular form of recurrent education in the context of prospective movements in expenditure on conventional school and tertiary education activities. Data on projected enrolments and likely per student expenditure levels in these sectors lead to the conclusion that expenditure on school and tertiary education is likely to decline as a proportion of gross domestic product (GDP) over the next decade. The magnitude of this prospective decline is compared with the likely costs of a scheme which would enable significant numbers of workforce members to engage in recurrent periods of ...

Recurrent Education: Economic And Equity Issues In Australia, Phil Mckenzie

Dr Phillip McKenzie

The review examines the relevance of the recurrent education concept in the Australian context.

Resource Allocation In The Government Schools Of Australia And New Zealand: A Summary Of The Reports Of The Staffing And Resources Study, John Ainley, John P Keeves, Phil Mckenzie, Andrew Sturman

Dr Phillip McKenzie

Issues of resource allocation to schools extend beyond the question of class size. Patterns of resource allocation are likely to be influenced by three continuing debates. One involves balancing equity in school staffing with encouraging diversity in school programs. Another involves the encouragement of devolution of authority to schools against a tradition of centralized political responsibility. A third centres on the debate about priorities among the many purposes of schooling. Schools now fill an expanded role which matches widening community expectations. Support for that role has implications for the level and type of resources allocated to schools. This book is ...

The Recurrent Education Debate An Economic Perspective, Phil Mckenzie

Dr Phillip McKenzie

The thesis led to the publication of the book Recurrent education: Economic and equity issues in Australia (Australian Education Review No. 20). In a review of the book, Dr George Psacharopoulos of the World Bank wrote “the author’s taxonomic framework of issues provides a model to be adhered to … I strongly recommend the book as “must” reading to anyone attempting to write a review of education sector issues in any country in the world” (International Review of Education, vol 30, 1984, p. 500).
