Higher Education Panel Commission on the Future of Education in Delaware. Final Report.
Delaware State Commission on the Future of Education, Dover.
The higher education panel of the Commission on the Future of Education in Delaware was charged by the governor with three major reviewing tasks: (1) the status of state-level educational administration to determine how well it can meet needs at that time and in the future; (2) the method used to determine postsecondary funding levels and introduction of new and continuing degree programs; and (3) the way in which Delaware meets its citizens' education needs and how to expand that outreach. The commission recommended that: functions concerning postsecondary education be consolidated under a proposed coordinating board rather than remain segmented; the Technical and Community College be allowed to retain tuition receipts as the other two institutions do; all institutions use the same budget format; no additional cabinet-form administration for postsecondary education be created; adult basic education be a responsibility of the coordinating board; and state and institutional data collection be standardized and done regularly.
