The '60s in Reverse.
Glenny, Lyman A.
The Research Reporter, v8 n3 p1-4 1973
Some significant trends in education are being overlooked today that foretell the coming direction of postsecondary education. The first trend includes the proportion of the State budget allocated for higher education in the future, which will be no greater in 1980 than it is now. The major trend that forces less funding is the establishment of a new set of social priorities (health care, common schools, environment, and recreation). Still another trend is the government's policy to reduce dollars for programs that aid institutions and instead give financial aid to students so that they may attend institutions of their choice. The fourth trend indicates that higher education will no longer be a growth industry unless an entirely new constituency can be attracted and unless continuing education becomes an accepted pattern in our society. Perhaps the most important of the major trends is the increasing tendency for those who desire training to attend proprietary and industrial schools rather than traditional colleges, universities, or community colleges. A final trend, collective bargaining, is less clearly established than the others, but it could turn out to be at least as important as any so far mentioned. The cumulative impact of these trends cannot be fully anticipated, but they point directly to greater centralized planning at the state level. (Author/PG)
