THE ACADEMIC STATE, A PROGRESS REPORT TO THE LEGISLATURE ON TUITION AND OTHER MATTERS PERTAINING TO HIGHER EDUCATION IN CALIFORNIA.
Joint Committee on Higher Education, Sacramento, CA.
THIS PROGRESS REPORT ON CALIFORNIA'S PUBLIC HIGHER EDUCATION COVERS MATERIAL ON ITS SCOPE AND PURPOSE, EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY, AID TO PRIVATE SCHOOLS, AND OTHER MATTERS PERTINENT TO THE PENDING DECISION ON A TUITION FEE. IN OBJECTING TO THE FEE, THE COMMITTEE FEELS THAT (1) SUCH AN ADDED COST, BEYOND FUNDS PROVIDED BY THE STATE'S GENERAL FUND, MAY DIVERT OR DISCOURAGE ENROLLMENT, (2) NEW OR EXPANDED PROGRAMS CAN BE OTHERWISE FUNDED, (3) REDUCING PUBLIC SUBSIDY OF THE IMMEDIATE BENEFICIARY BURDENS HIM AND HIS FAMILY UNDULY (UNLESS HE MAY MAKE DEFERRED PAYMENTS), (4) CONSIDERING FOREGONE EARNINGS, THE STUDENT'S EXPENSES ARE ALREADY HIGH, AND (5) ALTERNATIVE REVENUE SOURCES CAN BE EXAMINED, E.G., WITHHELD INCOME TAX, ADDITIONAL GIFTS AND GRANTS, IMMEDIATE USE OF ENDOWMENT INCOME, AND INCREASED FEES FOR CONTRACTS AND SERVICES. DISSENTING MEMBERS OF THE 10-MAN COMMITTEE POINT OUT, AMONG OTHER THINGS, THAT (1) THE STUDENT, AS PRINCIPAL BENEFICIARY, SHOULD REDUCE THE LOAD OF THE TAXPAYER, (2) SUCH A FEE WOULD ENCOURAGE THE STUDENT'S SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY, (3) THE SCHOOLS, IF FINANCIALLY MORE DIRECTLY DEPENDENT ON THE STUDENTS AND PARENTS, WOULD BE MORE RESPONSIVE TO THEIR WISHES, AND (4) A GRADUATED FEE SCHEDULE COULD SPREAD THE COST ACCORDING TO ABILITY TO PAY. THE REPORT DISCUSSES OTHER ASPECTS OF THE PROBLEM AND PRESENTS CHARTS AND TABLES ON MASTER PLAN PROJECTIONS THROUGH 1972. (HH)
