A Funding Model for Community College Operating Costs.
Lausberg, Clement H.
This state- and national-level funding model was designed to assist community and junior college administrators, state agency officials, and officers in the executive and legislative branches of state government. The principal objectives of the model are to: (1) officially recognize post-secondary education as a public responsibility; (2) equalize state support among college districts; (3) equalize support among college disciplines; (4) provide a statewide uniform student fee schedule; (5) provide equal educational opportunities for all students; and (6) protect local control over state-appropriated funds. The state model contains information pertaining to funding categories, special student fees, high cost institutions, and opportunity grants. The national model covers eligibility, costs, and matching grants. Recommendations made include: (1) more research on funding models is necessary; (2) computers should be used to determine financial consequences of selecting various alternatives; and (3) all levels of public education need comprehensive funding models to support basic educational objectives.
