Abstract:

Rational planning for better education requires that the analysis of effectiveness of educational systems be as rigorously developed as the analysis of the resources they require. By encouraging the use of systematic techniques for planning, program budgeting should lead to the expansion and improvement of ways to relate the quantity and quality of the educational product to the resources used to create it. Because program budgeting may provide decisionmakers with defensible criteria other than cost, which to date has been dominant in decisionmaking in education as well as in other public institutions, it offers a way out of the tyranny of the budget.
