A Study of the State Grants Mechanism. Final Report.
Korim, Andrew; And Others
The report analyzes the characteristics of the State grant mechanism for the distribution of Federal vocational education funds to local education agencies and compares total vocational educational expenditures between 1969 and 1971. The State grant mechanism is studied in terms of the extent to which funds set aside for disadvantaged, for handicapped, and for postsecondary students reach these target populations; the extent to which the States have been able to allocate the Federal funds to the localities based on ability to pay, excess costs of vocational education, vocational needs, and manpower needs; and a review of State vocational education expenditures and the degree to which they reflect Federal vocational education priorities as specified in the 1968 Vocational Education Amendments. The report concludes that the approach of the 1968 Amendments is an appropriate one in that it fits contemporary American federalism. It further concludes that the Tydings Amendment should be extended but that changes in the formula used to allocate money to the States would be in order. Supportive statistical tables and related data are incorporated into the report. There is a five-page bibliography. (AG)
