Distributing College Budgets: A Study of Local Education Authority (LEA) Planning and Formulae-Funding Mechanisms in England. AIR 1989 Annual Forum Paper.
Birch, Derek W.; Spencer, Anne C.
The Education Reform Act 1988 provides for the reform of the funding and governance of colleges of further education in England and Wales, comprising about 400 colleges (equivalent to community colleges and vocational schools) across 104 local education authorities (LEAs). The process and formula for budget-setting is described, and a number of issues raised by the new funding arrangements are explored, including: enrollments, institutional costs, program areas, program area weights, small and specialist colleges, monitoring and evaluation, and indicators of effectiveness (including enrollments and student completions of programs). Contains 5 references. (Author/KM)
