Second Annual Academic and Financial Study of Teacher Education Programs in Senior State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges. 1978-1979.
Peseau, Bruce A.; Orr, Paul G.
The academic productivity and financial status of 59 teacher education programs in state universities and land-grant colleges were determined through surveys completed in summer 1979. Data were provided on 210 variables in the major categories of: (1) accredited programs; (2) faculty, faculty load, and salaries; (3) budgets and Full Time Equivalent (FTE) staffing; (4) academic productivity by level; and (5) degrees conferred by level. Tabular presentations of data acompany discussions on each of the variables. Included in the discussions of these variables are: (1) average class size; (2) weighted credit hour productivity per FTE faculty; (3) cost per semester credit hour and weighted semester credit hour; (4) cost per FTE student by level; (5) mix of academic productivity; and (6) program complexity factors. Data indicate that the funding of major state and land-grant universities continues to be deficit, and it is recommended that the teacher education profession define the minimum standard of funding as has been done in other professional disciplines.
