Task Force Report on Two-Year Postsecondary Education in Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg.
The Pennsylvania Task Force on Two-Year Postsecondary Education, whose members represented the public at large and all segments of postsecondary education, was commissioned to recommend a rationale for the orderly development of two-year programs to meet the needs of Commonwealth residents; to identify the most effective means of providing two-year postsecondary education for all residents of the Commonwealth; to recommend a method of financing two-year educational programs; and to suggest measures for the eradication and avoidance of unnecessary and costly program duplications. The introductory chapters of the report define two-year postsecondary education, analyze existing institutions according to enrollments, locations, and services provided, and present the rationale and goals for two-year postsecondary education. The chapter on effective means of providing low-cost, easily accessible two-year postsecondary education discusses interinstitutional cooperation and consortia, the extension of program offerings at existing institutions, and state-level contracting with in-state private institutions and with institutions outside the state. Subsequent chapters discuss financial aid to students and to institutions, and methods of avoiding program duplication. The final chapters include recommendations and additional comments by Task Force members. (Author/DC)
