Reflections on Statewide Coordination.
Sample, Steven B.
Coordinating boards, no matter how carefully constructed, are super bureaucracies. Battles inevitably ensue between a coordinating board and the institutions that it proports to coordinate. Strong coordinating boards work best in large industrialized states, states with populations running into the many millions and spending hundreds of millions of public tax dollars in higher education each year. A coordinating board does not seem to be the answer for the State of Nebraska. Compared to other states, its system of higher education is relatively simple and comprises a relatively small number of institutions. It seems that some form of state-wide governance would be the most efficient way to insure maximum utilization of the higher education tax dollar in Nebraska. (Author/KE)
