Far, Far To Go: Public Spending for Children and Youth in Texas. Special Project Report.
Grubb, W. Norton; And Others
This study examines spending on children and youth in Texas by constructing a comprehensive children's budget for 1978 spending. The study attempts to include not only data on spending through State government sources, but also other public sources of funds, charitable spending, and indirect Federal subsidies through tax exclusions. Total spending is examined by purpose and source in Chapter 1, followed by a description of recipients of public expenditures and some of the rationales for these expenditures in Chapters 2 and 3. Next, the extent of community-based rather than institution-based programs is examined for such areas as mental retardation, delinquency, and substance abuse. Chapter 5 examines the extent of preventive as opposed to treatment programs. The final two chapters analyze the importance of nonservice spending such as administrative expenses, and describe spending in Texas in relation to the State's administrative structure for children's programs. Appendices include data sources, and explanations of how estimates for county and local expenditures, tax expenditures, and private philanthropic expenditures were made. (CG)
