State Funding Formulae for Public Two-Year Colleges.
Wattenbarger, James L.; Starnes, Paul M.
A nationwide survey was conducted to determine the States' formulae for funding operating expenses of the public two-year colleges. A one-page questionnaire, mailed to each State director for community/junior colleges, requested information on allocation formulae for operating expenses, capital outlay, and the State's total community/junior colleges appropriations for the past three years. The forty-three States providing data were grouped into four categories for analysis of responses: (1) for those reporting no formula; (2) for these that did not report any actual dollar amount per unit of measure; (3) for those reporting some set rate or schedule of rates, $/unit of measure; and (4) for those reporting detailed procedural methodologies. Data concerning State versus local shares in funding were also obtained. The questionnaire and a table of total dollars apportioned by States for their public two-year colleges are appended. (KM)
