Analyzing the Technical Efficiency of School Districts in Oklahoma
AbstractThe parameters of a stochastic production frontier and the determinants of X inefficiency are estimated simultaneously using a maximum likelihood estimator proposed by Battese and Coelli (1995). Our results indicate that additional instructional and noninstruction expenditures improve student performance, but only by a small amount. In addition, we find that school district size, teacher education and experience, and teacher salary affect the technical efficiency of schools.
