Education financing and student achievement

  • Giuseppe Bertola


We briefly review how schools’ financial resources affect the amount, quality, and heterogeneity of education, and how in turn the provision of educational services bears on students’ achievement. Then, we discuss the implications of different ways of linking school resources to student achievement, focusing in particular on the distinction between family-based and State-based channels of financial support.
