Öffentliche oder private Umsetzung des staatlichen Bildungsauftrages? : Eine Analyse auf der Grundlage der Theorie unvollständiger Verträge


  • Wigger, Berthold U.

Soll der Staat den gesetzlichen Bildungsauftrag durch die Errichtung öffentlicher Bildungseinrichtungen umsetzen, oder soll er private Unternehmen beauftragen, für ein ausreichendes Angebot an Bildung zu sorgen? Diese Frage wurde in der bisherigen bildungsökonomischen Diskussion weitgehend unter verteilungspolitischen Gesichtspunkten betrachtet oder aus historischer Perspektive beantwortet. Wir thematisieren dagegen in der vorliegenden Arbeit den Effizienzaspekt der öffentlichen und der privaten Bildungsproduktion, wobei wir die vertraglichen Grundlagen der beiden Produktionsalternativen und die dadurch bedingten Anreize in den Bildungseinrichtungen in den Mittelpunkt unserer Analyse stellen.
