Safe and Healthy School Environments

The operation of schools can be viewed as a complex business operation that requires smooth functioning, good staff, sound and healthy facilities, customer satisfaction, productive outcomes, and room for creativity and ingenuity. This chapter makes the “business case” for safe and healthy schools. The first section deals with the economic evaluation of projects, policies, or proposals, and provides a review of basic concepts and analytic techniques used to conduct economic evaluations. The second section introduces some basic concepts of economic behavior and the analysis of economic demand. The chapter concludes with three case studies (two real and one hypothetical) that help illustrate the principles described here.

Keywords:   school management, school operation, school environment, business practices, facilities, creativity, ingenuity
