Efficiency Issues in Educational Contracting Lieberman, Myron

If there is one area where the potential for privatization has failed to explore, it is in the field of public education. Even though school districts may contract out for support services, they rarely consider doing the same for teaching staffs. Dr. Myron Lieberman offers a pragmatic and frank discussion in this overlooked option. Topics addressed include: the cost /benefit of such an approach, the dangerous time bomb of unfunded pension costs, overcoming union opposition to contracting out and the role of management in the process. It is must reading for school administrators and contains material that will appear in his upcoming book on privatizing the nation's public schools.
