A Classic Economies of Size Analysis of Average School Costs: An Iowa Case Study
This study found size economies in Iowa school districts. An asymmetric U-shaped cost curve provided the best fit. Costs were minimized at 2,952 per pupil and 2,442 pupils, but most size economies-within 100 per pupil-were achieved at 800 to 900 pupils. Implications for school reorganization were discussed.
