Texas Governor's Committee on Education Beyond the High School, Austin.
Reponsibilities of the Governor's Committee on Education beyond the High School, which was created in 1963 by Governor John Connally of Texas, are outlined. In addition, the creation of a Joint Advisory Committee on Government Operations in 1975 by the 65th Texas Legislature and a Special Committee on Higher Education Financing in Texas by the 66th Legislature are addressed in separate publications. Responsibilities for the Governor's Committee on Education beyond the High School include study of: the needs in Texas for educational opportunities beyond the high school during 1963-1973; present and potential resources of existing institutions and systems; and needed facilities and programs. The Joint Advisory Committee on Government Operations, as discussed in an excerpt from"Joint Advisory Committee on Government Operations: Final Report to the Governor of Texas and Members of the Sixty-Fifth Texas Legislature," (January 1977), was created to promote the economical delivery of services provided by state government by means of a comprehensive review of governmental structure and administration. Attention is directed to the cost-effectiveness improvement efforts and the structure and operation of the committee, results of a review of higher education costs and operations, and financing college construction. Finally, the proposed creation of a Special Committee on Higher Education Financing in Texas is outlined in "Senate Concurrent Resolution, S.C.R. No. 101." This committee would pay special attention to issues of facility financing, the impact of declining enrollments, the future of formula financing, and the adequacy of financial administration. (SW)
