  • TITLE: Effects of State Expenditure on the Primary Completion Rate in Burkina Faso

    AUTHORS: Sayouba Ouedraogo

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of the paper is to identify and analyze the effects of budget expenditures (operation, salary, and investment) on the completion rate of primary education. The annual education budgetary data from 1970 to 2013 collected in Burkina Faso were used to estimate a parametric education production function. The results show a positive effect of unitary investment expenditure and a negative effect of unit staff salaries and budgetary instabilities. Pay mechanisms in public administration should be redesigned to reward proven performance and skills. Moreover, the control of budget programming would lead to better results in the education sector.
