Federal-State-Institutional Relations in Postsecondary Education.
Honey, John C.; Hartle, Terry W.
Issues of federal-state-institutional relations are moving to the center of attention of policymakers concerned with postsecondary education. One reason for the shift is that the Higher Education Amendments of 1972, which contained a number of important measures bearing on these relations, will be subject to revision and renewal in the current session of Congress. While the states still play an extremely important role and institutions are at the center of the higher education enterprise, federal policies and federal funds are shaping the future of American postsecondary education. Section 1 reviews the historical evolution of the federal state relations. Section 2 summarizes alternative ways for handling postsecondary programs and relationships with institutions, the states, and the federal government. Section 3 presents a proposal for a federal-state-institutional partnership on postsecondary education and summarizes the current national concerns-that place the federal government in a preeminent position with respect to education. Section 4 discusses state and institutional administrative and fiscal capabilities. Section 5 notes on-going research relevant to the subject of the paper, and a bibliography and list of persons interviewed are appended. (Author/PG)
