Report on Higher Education Finance in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Bowen, Howard R.
This report on higher education finance in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is divided into six sections. Section one deals with state support for higher education, and whether the state should give greater attention to the private sector than it has in the past. The question of whether the state could support substantial additional costs of higher education in the decade ahead is discussed in section two. Section three deals with the financing of the increased costs of higher education, with increased taxation seen as the only alternative financial resource. The policy issues that the Commonwealth of Massachusetts faces as it considers the share of higher education costs to be provided are treated in section four. The mechanisms that the state should use in controlling higher education and increasing accountability concern section five, and section six outlines equal access and its impact on institutional finance. Appendices include students' charges at 327 state colleges and universities, and appropriations per capita for higher education in the 50 states. (Author/PG)
