The study investigates the efficiency of local public educational expenditure of
31 provinces in China during 2005-2010, using the Slack-based Measurement
(SBM) directional distance function. The results show that public educational
expenditure is the most efficient in eastern China, followed by middle and
western areas. The inefficiency can be explained mostly by the number of
master graduates, while the impacts of the number of undergraduates and
graduates from secondary school are also significant. Additionally, bootstrap
method is applied to explore the contextual factors influencing the efficiency. The
results suggest that economic development and urbanization process increase
the efficiency, while the state-owned industry obstructs the development
