Indicators and Costing of Florida's Education Goals.
Waggaman, John S.
This paper is one of four related publications that are intended to identify and develop a set of indicators for monitoring educational activities in Florida from the state level. The central focus of this paper is on the specification of cost-finding concepts plus identification of a few cost indicators. Various sections of the paper discuss the use of cost indicators for interstate educational comparisons, examine the use of cost indicators for comparing education with other state governmental services in Florida, consider the main issues and concerns in developing and using a costing system for education, offer suggestions for classifying and costing Florida's educational goals, and discuss some fundamental concern and problems related to a uniform costing system and to some of the financial management problems facing educational administrators. The appendix contains examples of suggested data presentation formats and data requirements for use in a statewide educational costing system. (JG)
