Cost Analysis of Secondary School Vocational Technical Education Programs.
Harris, George W.; O'Fallon, O. Kenneth
Delivery costs per contact hour for secondary school vocational technical education in Tennessee were gathered from January to June 1973. A sample of six selected schools teaching 58 courses in 109 separate classes was used. Data were analyzed to determine direct and indirect costs per student contact hour for each course with and without consideration of site value, total cost per student contact hour per course, total cost of educating a student in each course, and projections of course and program costs for a five year period. Results are presented in tables and text. There was no evidence that size of school or geographical location was important in determining the cost level. Teachers' salaries were found to be the largest direct cost. Cost factors and projected costs reported in this study can be useful for planning and budgetmaking. Three additional studies are recommended. Terms are defined and forms used are given in appendixes. (MS)
