Appropriations of State Tax Funds for Operating Expenses of Higher Education. 1969-1970.
Chambers, M. M.
This annual report provides listings of tax-fund appropriations of state legislatures for operating expenses of higher education in each state. The appropriations are for the fiscal year 1969-70, although some of the state listings also include appropriations for 1970-71. Within each state, appropriations are listed for each 4-year public institution, various boards or state-wide coordinating agencies, and other programs and activities in higher education. Some of the states include listings for each 2-year college, while others provide only aggregrate appropriations for 2-year institutions. For many of the large 4-year universities, appropriations are listed for various centers, institutes, and programs within the institution. A table providing information on 2-year and 10-year gains in total appropriations in each state is also included. Ten-year gains range from 138% to 743%. The report notes that although there are seemingly large increases in appropriations, serious financial needs of numerous state universities are not being met. Students are increasingly being asked to pay a larger proportion of the total cost of education in public institutions and, in one state, the percentage paid by students now exceeds 50%. Increases in student charges over the nation are exceeding the consumer price index while at the same time salary increases for faculty are not meeting inflationary costs. (DS)
