Abstract

As efficiency plays a pivotal role in the realization of quality education and teacher training institutions are the lifeblood of quality teachers, the present study presents the results of an efficiency study of some selected Ghanaian public universities colleges of education in the three Northern Regions of Ghana from 2012-2017. Through the use of Slack Based Model of Data Envelope Analysis and a model of CCR, our results indicate that Tamale College of Education and Tumu were the only efficient colleges out of the four selected colleges in the study domain. While Bagabaga College of Education and St. John BOSCO was the inefficient colleges during the study period of 2012 – 2017. The results also suggested that by adopting the best managerial practices, the Colleges can, on an average, reduce their inputs by at least 2.2% and still produce at the same level of outputs. According to the slack-based results, only two Colleges that is, Bagabaga College of Education and St. John BOSCO were inefficient and needed adjustment in inputs and outputs to become efficient.

Keywords: collages of education; data envelope analysis; slack-based model; efficiency
