A Cost Analysis of Teacher Education at the City University of New York.
Lohman, Maurice A.; Kirkpatrick, Carolyn
This report examines the cost of teacher education in seven of the senior colleges of the City University of New York for the spring semester of 1970. It is limited to those costs related to the staffs assigned to instructional, supportive and non-teaching functions within the various teacher education programs. Results indicate that costs for present teacher education programs at the undergraduate level are approximately 25 percent above those of undergraduate liberal arts, and graduate programs are 8 percent above graduate liberal arts. The extra costs are due to two factors: 1) the cost of non credit-producing activities related to the supervision and maintenance of a licensed professional training program, and 2) the high costs of off-campus supervised student teaching and field experiences. Of the entire teacher education instructional budget, 30.7 percent was allocated to undergraduate courses, 23.8 percent to graduate courses, 21.0 percent to non-teaching duties, 5.6 percent to secretarial costs, and 18.9 percent to fringe benefits. (The report contains numerous tables which analyze costs according to college, course, or credit hours.) (RT)
