Planning for Student Financial Assistance.
Michigan State Board of Education, Lansing.
Neither the abstract conceptualization nor the pragmatic reality of financial aid operates in a vacuum. Both are subject to, and indeed part of, the larger societal fabric with its overriding priorities and concerns. The relative paucity of universal truths in this field does not, however, in any way diminish the state's responsibility for thorough planning and evaluation in this area. Instead, it simply highlights the critical need for such action if the legitimate needs of Michigan residents are to be responsibly addressed. Before the planning process can be engaged in a meaningful manner, however, there must be information available as to: (1) a mutually acceptable definition regarding the concept of student financial aid; (2) an understanding of the background of the field and its current major programs; (3) a perspective regarding the relative adequacy of current expenditures in this field; (4) an overview of the present delivery system matrix; and (5) an idea of the nature of some of the central issues of present concerns in the field.
