Fiscal Aspects of Public Education: XIII. General Conclusion and Bibliography

by Edward C. Elliott - 1905

Aside from the detailed results of this study recorded in the preceding chapters, it seems pertinent to gather together here some of the larger and wider aspects of the method used and of the results obtained. The validity of the application of such a statistical method as that employed cannot, I believe, be questioned. The study of the financial statistics of education, through the medium of large groups of cities needs no further justification, if such statistics are to be raised above the plane of mere one to one comparison of cities and are to be utilized for general scientific conclusions. The study of the expenditures for public education with reference to the expenditures for other municipal activities should be extended until the relationships between all of these different expenditures can be defined and their meaning fully understood. As cities increase in size, and the extent, number, and importance of municipal functions increase, thus bringing a greater burden to the sources of the municipal income, there will develop a greater necessity for a knowledge and understanding of these relations, both for a fuller recognition of the essential conditions of municipal life and for a better comprehension of the legitimate claims of public education for a more generous support.
