The Efficiency/Equity Quandary and Higher Educational Finance.
Windham, Douglas M.
This speech examines alternative means of financing higher education within the context of how they affect both the equity of opportunity for such education and the efficiency of societal investment. According to the author, the system of higher education is inherently inequitable. The manner in which a financing program of full-cost tuition and long-term loans can minimize this inequity, as well as the long-term inequities while maximizing both social and private efficiency, is developed. Illustrative statistics from North Carolina are utilized, but conclusions are derived in terms of any public higher educational system. (Author)
