Post-Secondary Educational Opportunity: A Federal-State-Institutional Partnership.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
A major responsibility of government, whether state, local or federal, is to provide educational opportunity for its citizens in accord with their abilities, motivations, and the needs of society. To achieve this goal in postsecondary education, a diversity of institutions for students to attend and the elimination of barriers to these institutions is required. From the standpoint of public policy, the prime need is for a real federal-state-institutional partnership in making equality opportunity more of a reality in this country. Such a partnership alone can assure substantial progress in meeting the needs of students, combined with reasonable, efficient, and effective allocation of existing and future aid resources. In the operation of this partnership a comprehensive program of student assistance, including opportunity grants, work-study loans, and self-help from students, is essential. This document presents a viable plan for such a program. (Author/HS)
