Federal Assistance for Postsecondary Education: Options for Fiscal Year 1979.
Longanecker, David; And Others
In 1978 the 95th Congress is faced with a number of proposals that could alter significantly the federal role in postsecondary education. These included modifications in student assistance programs and adoption of tuition tax credits that would not only increase substantially the amount of federal funding for postsecondary education but also broaden the focus of federal efforts to provide increased assistance to middle-income students and families to reduce the burden of college costs. This paper examines current federal funding for higher education and analyzes the probable impact of the various proposals under discussion within Congress. (MSE)
