Summary

An educational system should attempt to provide four services: (1) skill acquisition for students, (2) competent citizens for society, (3) a balance between the supply and demand for educated persons, and (4) maximum quality education at minimal cost. Since performance in school is often used as a screening device in career choice, care should be taken to ensure than testing is fair and scientific. The need for trained personnel can be assessed using two approaches, manpower planning and demand-for-places. A measure of efficiency can be derived by comparing total years of studies and resources expended with outcomes of the system. This article contains a brief discussion of the criteria for assessing quality education, including an appendix on measuring wastage in education. (EMH)
