Financing Community Colleges.
Garms, Walter I.
This book addresses the issues surrounding the financing of community colleges. The first two chapters deal with the development of American community colleges and the functions and finances of these institutions. Chapter three explores the benefits and disadvantages that would accrue to parties involved in higher education if any of several outlined free-market models for financing community colleges were implemented. Chapter four presents a consideration of community college financing in a planned economy as compared to a free-market operation, then analyzes the effects of several "mixed-economy" models. Chapter five briefly outlines the effects of tuition in public and private colleges, in vocational education, and on students in general. Chapter six presents, explains, and defends nine criteria to be used in evaluating models for financing community colleges. Two alternative models for financing community colleges are offered: one for those states preferring a state system of colleges, and one for those states preferring a system of public colleges in which there is a partnership between localities and states. Appendices related to present and proposed systems of community college financing and a bibliography are included. (JDS)
