A Career Education Entitlement Plan: Administrative and Political Issues.
Honey, John C.; Hartle, Terry W.
The examination of administrative and political issues in career education entitlement (voucher) plans opens with a discussion of various rationales and models for entitlement programs. A discussion of existing and proposed entitlement schemes covers the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant Program (BEOG), the educational benefits provided under the G. I. Bill, the Tuition Assistance Plan (TAP) of New York State, and entitlements proposed by Norman Kurland, Herbert Striner, and Charles Benson and Harold Hodgkinson. The discussion of administrative issues covers: general administrative concerns; a new entitlement agency; participant, institution, and program eligibility; student protection; information; advice and counseling; special issues related to participant support services; employed participants' needs; participant placement; and entitlement evaluation. The discussion of political issues assesses the likely reactions of the public in general, students, professionals in postsecondary education (not institutional spokesmen), institutional spokesmen, educational associations, other leading lobbying groups, the States, and the Congress. A discussion of next steps offers two proposals: one for experimenting with a new program, the other for building on existing entitlements. Four appendixes (a bibliography, administrative and political issues in career education voucher and entitlement plans, and an experimental entitlement scheme for adults to aid career related education) comprise 25 pages.
