Abstract

The attempt to include the time variable in a production function of education is often plagued by the lack of attention paid to the different dimensions of time (such as amount, dispersion and intensity). This study investigates the importance of time in contributing to the efficiency of the educational process by developing a typology for the addition of the time variable in the production of education. The study includes a literature review on the subject, outlines the conceptual frameworks surrounding time and education, and then draws on international evidence, with new evidence drawn from a survey of Middle East/North African Countries.The study suggests that time remains a critical factor in the educational process, and more accurate measures of time input could help policymakers improve educational legislation.
