Managing Finance and Resources in Education

First Edition
Edited by:

Volume: 4

March 2001 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

An up-to-date reference for practitioners dealing with financial and resource management in schools and colleges

The first part offers macro-national and international perspectives, and provides the context for chapters in Part Two, which cover different aspects of the management of finances and resources within schools and colleges. Of the several themes which underpin both parts of the book, perhaps the most important is the potential for links between financial management, the deployment of resources, and actual learning outcomes.
