Seventh Annual Study of Funding and Academic Production of Teacher Education in State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges, 75 Universities 1983-1984.
Peseau, Bruce A.
Data from teacher education programs in 75 public universities are analyzed in relation to their relative resources and productivity. Data include budget allocations by line (faculty, secretaries, administrators, graduate assistants, operating funds, capital outlay), broken down by academic year, summer session, and 12-month appointments. Data also include credit hours produced (differentially weighted by level), degrees awarded, tuition rates, and faculty salaries. (Institutions are listed by code number only. Translation of the code is not given thus no data is identifiable from a specific university.) Analyses are presented relating the resources of each program with what was produced (credit hours, degrees awarded, faculty-student ratios, class sizes, etc). The cost per weighted credit hour, and per academic year of a student by degree level, shows that the teacher education programs in these senior universities continues to cost less for an undergraduate student than for a public school child. Specific suggestions are made for basic policy changes needed to improve teacher education, from adequate funding, to more reasonable student-faculty ratios and class size. The survey instrument and 79 data tables are included. (Author/JD)
