Linking national education accounts to quality assurance and outcome measures

Abstract:

Improving the efficiency and effectiveness of resource use in the education system is critical to achieving better learning outcomes and maximizing the impact of available resources in most developing countries. Establishing a clear feedback cycle between financing and results is central to strengthening an education system. While broad estimates and numbers are routinely collected by most national ministries and state departments of education, the lack of accuracy and reliability does not facilitate meaningful policy use. Using flow-of-funds information from National Education Accounts (NEAs) in conjunction with input and output data from Education Management Information System (EMIS) provides a unique platform to measure and link results to resources and support learning as a key component of long-term growth and poverty reduction.

In essence, NEAs gather information on all spending from public, private and donor sources, and provide a snap-shot of all expenditures on education in the state or country. EMIS collects and records data on a host of input and output indicators, including enrollment of students, number of teachers in the school system, education level of students, number of classrooms, pass rate of students, and so on. Combing the two can potentially provide very rich information on a variety of indicators and constitute the evidence base for sound policy-making.

This paper provides an assessment of accountability and efficiency in the use of public and private resources in the education sector in the state of Bauchi in Nigeria. Analyzing data from Education Accounts together with output data from EMIS, the paper proposes a novel way of linking results with education spending to help policy makers in Bauchi maximize the effectiveness of the education system.
