Educational Resource Management

An International Perspective

Second Edition

Resource management, though a central responsibility of school and college leaders, is one that they are often unprepared for. Concise and contextual information and guidance are vital, especially as leaders are pressured from all sides to manage their resources astutely. This new edition of Educational Resource Management: An International Perspective is an updated and globally conscious guide to all aspects of this key responsibility.
Opening with a detailed overview of funding and resource management in public and private institutions, the book looks at the criteria by which the effectiveness, efficiency, and equity of educational resource management can be judged. It goes on to explore cost structures, budgets, and the principles of asset management through case studies that draw on practitioner experiences as well as the authors’ own observations. Educational Resource Management concludes with a review of current tensions and points towards further study, providing a succinct yet comprehensive guide for school and college leaders.
