Review:

"An encyclopedic overview of the contributions of economists to the study of education. The text would be an excellent choice for a textbook aimed at exposing education and public policy students to the research on education being conducted by economists, particularly those classes focused on K- 12 education. With the comprehensive approach to topics and the bibliographic detail, this text is at a minimum an excellent reference for anyone that researches or teaches education topics using economic concepts." --Larry D. Singell Jr.- Department of Economics, University of Oregon, Eugene
