Financing Postsecondary Education. Policy Development and Decision Making. The Report of the Conference Series. Report No. 69.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
Because of the comprehensiveness and complexity of the numerous reports on financing postsecondary education, appropriate dissemination to decisionmakers and educators at all levels was crucial. To assist in the dissemination process, the Education Commission of the States (ECS) conducted a series of regional conferences, concluding with a national conference, on the general theme of postsecondary financing. This report summarizes and highlights that conference series. Participants discussed modes of financing which would expand resources for delivering education, ways of providing education within existing budgets, possibly even shrinking budgets. The discussions focused, in part, on accountability, greater efficiency and productivity standards, and the relative fiscal health of the levels of government. At the national conference several analysts and planners offered new insights and directions for postsecondary financing. (Author/JMF)
