A Context for Policy Research in Financing Postsecondary Education.
Weathersby, George B., Ed.; Nash, Deanna, Ed.
In their deliberations leading to the basic conclusions and recommendations reported in "Financing Postsecondary Education in the United States." Commissioners of the National Commission on the Financing of Postsecondary Education used staff prepared supplementary materials. This report is one of a series of staff reports prepared to make these materials available to a broader audience. Five papers prepared by the National Commission's staff are collected in this volume. They explore several areas that are relevant to postsecondary education policymaking in the 1970s: 18-year-old majority, noncollegiate institutions, recent financing proposals, and alternative modes of financing (especially congressional tax-credit proposals.) Titles of the papers are: "Future Policy Issues Concerning Postsecondary Education: Demand and Supply"; "The New Adults and the Financing of Postsecondary Education: The Implications of the 18-year-old majority"; "A Summary and Analysis of the National Commission's Survey of Noncollegiate Institutions"; and "Recent Proposals for Financing Postsecondary Education: A Summary".
