Notes
  • The efficiency of schools diverges dramatically across countries in the OECD and can also vary markedly within countries. These differences in levels of efficiency can be traced to policy and institutional settings. As such, moving to best practice could boost educational attainment and reduce pressure on budgetary resources. This paper assesses empirically the relationship between institutional and policy settings and the efficiency of public spending on primary and secondary education across OECD countries. The analysis builds on two previous papers, which respectively developed OECD-area indicators of educational efficiency based on PISA score data and institutional indicators based on questionnaire responses. The results identify a number of institutional and policy settings that appear conducive to raising efficiency, as well as policies that appear to be detrimental to achieving higher levels of efficiency. Liens entre les indicateurs d'efficacité et les indicateurs institutionnels dans le secteur de l'enseignement primaire et secondaireL'efficacité des établissements scolaires varie énormément dans les pays de la zone OCDE et peut aussi varier sensiblement à l'intérieur d'un même pays. Ces différences de niveaux d'efficience peuvent être attribuées aux politiques publiques et aux structures institutionnelles. De ce fait, s'orienter vers les meilleures pratiques pourrait stimuler les performances des systèmes scolaires. Cet article évalue de manière empirique la relation entre les structures institutionnelles, les politiques gouvernementales et l'efficacité des dépenses publiques consacrées à l'éducation primaire et secondaire dans les pays de l'OCDE. Cette analyse s'appuie sur deux précédentes études, l'une qui a élaboré des indicateurs au niveau de la zone OCDE de l'efficacité des systèmes éducatifs à partir des scores PISA, l'autre des indicateurs des structures institutionnelles à partir des réponses à un questionnaire. Ceci conduit à identifier un certain nombre de structures institutionnelles et de politiques publiques qui semblent induire une efficience accrue, mais aussi des politiques qui semblent nuire à une amélioration des niveaux d'efficacité.
