Efficiency in lower and upper secondary education as a network: implications for the Northern Powerhouse

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNConference contribution/Paperpeer-review



The efficiency of secondary schools in England is evaluated using a network data envelopment analysis. School-specific efficiency scores at the various nodes of the network are regressed against environmental variables. It is found, inter alia, that schools located in the Northern Powerhouse are less efficient than others at the upper secondary level, though no less efficient at lower secondary level.
