dc.description.abstractWe use the PISA student-level achievement database to estimate international educationproduction functions. Student characteristics, family backgrounds, home inputs, resources,teachers and institutions are all significantly related to math, science and readingachievement. Our models account for more than 85 percent of the between-countryperformance variation, with roughly 25 percent accruing to institutional variation. Studentperformance is higher with external exams and budget formulation, but also with schoolautonomy in textbook choice, hiring teachers and within-school budget allocations. Schoolautonomy is more beneficial in systems with external exit exams. Students perform better inprivately operated schools, but private funding is not decisive.en_US
