A Prototype National Educational Finance Planning Model. Projections of Educational Needs, Resources and Disparities under Various Forecasting and Policy Assumptions.
Sklar, Sigmund L.; Ioup, William E.
The development and application of a computerized model, designed to stimulate the nation's future educational needs and resources and the disaprities between them, are described. The results of the simulation, reported by region and by type of residential area, allow the following types of projections through 1980: (1) enrollment given alternative population forecasts; (2) teacher supply and demand as a function of enrollment, retirement, and program changes; (3) Federal, State, and local revenues for education based on alternative methods of financing; (4) expenditure levels for educational programs affecting special target groups; and (5) differences between future educational revenues for various kinds of school systems given alternate sets of assumptions. The raw data and the basic equations used to construct the model are appended along with discussions of the model's feedback implications, its implications for coordinating State and Federal educational planning, and its application to educational finance planning in California and Pennsylvania.
