An Educational Finance Planning Model for Pennsylvania.
Sklar, S. L., Comp.; And Others
The model described in this report is a computer program capable of projecting population, enrollment, teacher supply (within six age classifications); and expenditures and revenues for 10 years for each intermediate unit, the State, and four residence classifications: metropolitan-center city, metropolitan-other, suburban or small community, and rural. The model can be used to pretest the financial impact of various assumptions about future trends, such as the impact of nonpublic school closings and the resultant influx of students into the public schools. All output is in terms of intermediate unit, type of residence, and State total. Almost any kind of proposed change can be simulated provided the proposal is clearly stated and quantifiable. The model pretests the financial outcome of proposed changes on the assumption that the interaction of variables within the educational finance system will be unchanged 10 years hence. (Author/EA)
