Cost Factors of Educational Programs in Florida.
Florida Univ., Gainesville. Inst. for Educational Finance.
During 1973 the Florida Legislature enacted a new State school finance law that established allocation standards designed to accomodate the varying educational needs among individual pupils. The assigned cost factors increased the allocations for educational programs for pupils having special and high cost educational needs. This study provides the Florida Department of Education with programmatic cost factor information compiled from a review of the literature and the research on measurement of the educational needs and on development of cost factors, and with a cost analysis of educational programs in 24 selected Florida school districts for 1972-73. Part 1 of the study discusses the measurement of need and cost factors while Part 2 gives the procedures and presents and analyzes the data from actual cost analysis in the 24 Florida school districts. No attempt is made to draw evaluative conclusions or to recommend changes in the present cost factors. (Author/DN)
