A General Model of a Postsecondary Education Commission for the State of Florida.
Reinwald, Bernard C.
The purpose of the study was to investigate and determine: (1) how key administrators of accredited Florida postsecondary educational institutions perceived specific compositional and structure features, functions, and authorities of a Florida State Postsecondary Education Commission (1202 commission) and (2) if there existed sufficient consensus between these perceptions to formulate a general model of a Florida State Postsecondary Education Commission. The population sample for the study included 122 accredited postsecondary institutions in Florida and 41 other accredited proprietary and vocational schools. The study was conducted through the utilization of two specially developed, forced-choice instruments and the Delphi technique. Results indicated it was possible to establish near and/or sufficient consensus for 15 of the original 18 statements pertaining to the conceptual makeup of a 1202 commission for the State of Florida. This was considered more than enough to design and develop a general model or paradigm of a State Postsecondary Education Commission (1202) for the State of Florida. The model is incorporated into this research. (Author/MJM)
