Schooling Quasi-Markets: Reconciling Economic and Sociological Analyses

British Journal of Educational Studies 47 (3):221 - 234 (1999)
We provide an economic assessment of the operation of schooling quasi-markets, re-interpreting the findings of the mainly sociologically-based empirical research. We find that economic analysis is complementary to that of sociology, providing further explanations for the failure of greater competition to increase the diversity of provision and challenge traditional school hierarchies.
