Current Status, Planning and Prospects of the 1202 State Postsecondary Commissions.
Fenske, Robert H., Ed.; Romesburg, Kerry D., Ed.
With the passage of the Education Amendments of 1972, the Congress of the United States introduced to the nation's educators a new academic and educational environment. Included in those amendments, under Title XII, General Provisions, was Section 1202 pertaining to the establishment of state postsecondary education commissions, signifying an expanded awareness of the new multifacted environment of postsecondary education. Four constituencies interested in statewide coordination of higher education and 1202 commissions were brought together in the conference. The constituencies were the executive directors (or their representatives) of state 1202 commissions, officials of the U.S. Office of Education representing the executive or administrative interests in the federal government, and scholars from the higher education community who have been engaged in research on 1202 commissions. Formal papers and informal discussions from that meeting are presented. The papers discuss (1) information related to how states have proceeded in establishing the state postsecondary education commissions required by 1202 in the Education Amendments of 1972, including information about membership by states and provisions for coordination of postsecondary planning with vocational education and manpower planning; (2) problems facing 1202 commissions; and (3) whether or not the 1202 commissions should be dissolved, and, if not, how they can be improved.
