Nowadays, education is perceived as one of the key factors influencing economic development. In s contemporary state, we can also observe a significant increase in the its redistributive function, that also includes education. These aspects contribute to a particular interest in problems of the economics of education. It is of particular importance to search for mechanisms providing efficient allocation of significant budget means destined for the education sector. Efficiency-driven approach to education requires specifying the effects of operation of education processes. Educational added value is the factor that is most often indicated in this context. It determines the increase in student’s knowledge in comparison with their capabilities; at the same time, the environmental factors influencing the student are treated as constant (not changing dynamically). It should be stressed, however, that educational process comprise not only of knowledge gained during a didactic process, but also of very important actions leading to forming social attitudes which involve raising, manners, altruistic attitudes and patriotism. This work encompasses chosen issues of the economics of education. It also constitutes the first result of work of an international team dealing with aforementioned problems. The authors of the paper are conscious that education processes are of a very complex nature, at the same time being of an immense importance for contemporary economies. Keeping in mind a complex nature of research of educational processes we present you with our initial work, at the same time urging you to join the discussion over these issues and to have an impact on the team’s work. This paper concentrates only on a narrow scope of issues related to the economics of education, dealing with problems of funding, education role in the economy and chosen organizational matters in education systems. It should be stressed once more, that it is only the initial stage of a study on a very wide issue that we intent to develop in our future papers.
