Fiscal Aspects of Public Education: VIII. Relationships between Items of Expenditure


by Edward C. Elliott - 1905

VIII. RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ITEMS OF EXPENDITURE Implications of the Variability. In the previous discussioni concerning variability, the question was raised as to the probable relationships which might exist between the various items of expenditure. Do the cities that spend a larger proportion than is ordinary of their total expenditures for the maintenance and operation of public schools also spend a larger proportion than is ordinary for libraries, for street lighting, for police service, for protection of health, etc.? Or does a proportional large expenditure for education mean that this is accomplished at a sacrifice of the support of such other activities? In other words, does proportional generous support of education convey any information concerning the character of the municipality regarded as a whole? If the existence of certain relationships can be demonstrated, then in general, a new basis of municipal worth and efficiency might be established.
