Aspirations, Enrollments, and Resources The Challenge to Higher Education in the Seventies.
Froomkin, Joseph
This study attempts to estimate the federal resources required to fulfill the aspirations of Americans for post-secondary education and draws up 2 possible levels of support to be reached by 1976--one to meet the nation's minimum aspirations and one which is more likely to allow the poor to participate in post-secondary education. The report is divided in 4 parts. Part 1 discusses the benefits of higher education and examines the revolution in social demand for higher education. Part 2 summarizes the research on certain policies of post-secondary institutions. It also presents an analysis of the relation of institutional characteristics to admission policies and subsidies to students. Part 3 deals with graduate education and the pros and cons of general institutional aid. Part 4 is devoted to estimating financial needs of students and institutions, outlining a program and discussing various alternative levels of federal aid to higher education. Eight appendices containing mostly statistical data are attached. (AF)
