Title and statement of responsibility : Privatization of public education is a controversial school reform whereby public schools have privately outsourced some instructional services. Recently, for-profit educational management organizations (EMOs) gained management of schools and districts. EMO supporters argue that free market competition and unregulated parental choice force all schools to become innovative, academically superior and fiscally efficient. The numerical increase in public charter schools throughout the United States has contributed to the rise of EMOs. Irrespective of academic achievement, what has not been investigated is an EMO's use of per pupil state aid. This exploratory study examines EMO and traditional local education agency (LEA) use of state per pupil revenue. Using state education financial data, the study examined whether EMO-managed LEAs reduced administrative costs and directed more per pupil funding to classroom instruction. Results examine how much EMO-managed LEAs and traditional LEAs spent on administrative expenses and classroom instruction. The investigation was hindered by the lack of publicly available data regarding EMOs. Findings indicated that a large EMO spent more per pupil revenue on total administration and less on classroom instruction than a large traditional school district. [Thesis]

Summary or Abstract : Privatization of public education is a controversial school reform whereby public schools have privately outsourced some instructional services. Recently, for-profit educational management organizations (EMOs) gained management of schools and districts. EMO supporters argue that free market competition and unregulated parental choice force all schools to become innovative, academically superior and fiscally efficient. The numerical increase in public charter schools throughout the United States has contributed to the rise of EMOs. Irrespective of academic achievement, what has not been investigated is an EMO's use of per pupil state aid. This exploratory study examines EMO and traditional local education agency (LEA) use of state per pupil revenue. Using state education financial data, the study examined whether EMO-managed LEAs reduced administrative costs and directed more per pupil funding to classroom instruction. Results examine how much EMO-managed LEAs and traditional LEAs spent on administrative expenses and classroom instruction. The investigation was hindered by the lack of publicly available data regarding EMOs. Findings indicated that a large EMO spent more per pupil revenue on total administration and less on classroom instruction than a large traditional school district..
