Some Thoughts and Reflections Regarding Parental Ability to Pay for Higher Education.
Bowman, James L.
This paper discusses questions regarding standards used by the College Scholarship Service (CSS) to measure expected parental contributions to their children's college education. It deals with problems regarding establishment of low and moderate budget levels, family size, discretionary income, and alternative measurement procedures. After extensive discussion of proposed changes in CSS procedures, it is recommended that the current CSS curves of expectation be extended downward to provide for a negative contribution. (JS)
