Il finanziamento dell’istruzione
AbstractCompetition between public and independent schools and universities can improve the quality of education. The paper compares the different systems of education in OECD countries and argues that in some cases, such as Italy, a major reform should be carried out. Public intervention should be designed not just on the basis of the standard market failure approach, but by searching an optimal blend between individuals’ free choice and paternalism.
