Effects of Tax Limitation Measures on Recurrent Education--Activities in California.
Geiogue, Harold E.
This paper discusses the impact of voter tax limitation initiatives in California on public postsecondary recurrent (or continuing) education efforts. The author provides background information on the structure and scope of California's postsecondary system and then describes the development of recurrent education programs within this system. The California "taxpayers revolt" is discussed, including the impact of Proposition 13 on recurrent education in public institutions and recurrent education's position in the political priority structure. The author, a legislative analyst, points to reasons for the general and specific vulnerability of postsecondary and recurrent education. He concludes by urging educators and policymakers concerned with recurrent education both to build stronger alliances with supportive forces outside education and to develop a stronger internal governance system.
