Financing Postsecondary Education in California.
California State Legislature, Sacramento. Joint Committee on the Master Plan for Higher Education.; Academy for Educational Development, Inc., Palo Alto, CA. Western Region.
This document presents an overview of the financial aspects of postsecondary educational institutions in California and suggests some recommendations for the alleviation of financial problems. The study consisted of extensive research of the current literature on financing, gathering key data on the California system, reviewing the pertinent testimony presented to the California legislature, and discussing financing problems with key persons in the state government and in each institutional segment. Some of the findings of the investigations include: (1) the public segments feel that they have been forced to educate increasing numbers of students with funds that, in terms of constant dollars, have not risen as rapidly as enrollments; (2) student financial aid needs are only partially being met, and both grants and loans are inadequate to meet the state's goal of open access to postsecondary education; and (3) competition for funding among the segments is intense and wasteful, and has had effects ranging from duplication of efforts and lack of cooperation to mild paranoia.
