Measurement of the Relative Efficiency of the Primary Schools in Kütahya, by Data Envelopment Analysis

In this study, efficiency of some primary schools in Kütahya, a province in Turkey, was tried to be measured by data envelopment analysis (DEA). Accordingly, in order to achieve more rational results, 10 primary schools in Kütahya, which are similar to each other in terms of their inputs and outputs were selected. Inputs and outputs which are thought to ideally reflect the efficiency measurements of the primary education institutions were determined. In this study, input-oriented CCR and BCC models were selected and used in the analyses. As a result of these analyses, efficient schools were identified and for those which were determined to be inefficient, proposals were suggested for a possible improvement.
