Maintaining Progress in Georgia Postsecondary Education: Recommendations for Today, Concerns for Tomorrow.
Governor's Committee on Postsecondary Education, Atlanta, GA.
The recommendations and policy proposals of the Governor's Committee on Postsecondary Education in Georgia are summarized, and postsecondary issues for the future are identified. Many of the Committee's recommendations are specifically addressed to various state boards and commissions. Ten issues and recommended actions are specified that pertain to postsecondary goals, communication, use of public resources, adequacy of funding, effective budgeting, basic skills, and work relevant programs. The following eight goals areas (and associated objectives) are also outlined: individual development, diversity and accessibility, equitable opportunity, responsiveness, excellence, effectiveness and efficiency, communication and cooperation, and public awareness. In addition, nine concerns that the Committee heard from Georgia educators, businessmen, and others as part of a goal assessment are summarized; and Committee recommendations are presented for each concern. State policy recommendations regarding student financial aid, admissions and remediation practices, geographic access, duplication, and program planning are also offered. Finally, concerns for the future are addressed, including finance, institutional roles, access, and articulation efforts in basic skills. (SW)
