Dual Funding for Dual Enrollment: An Inducement or an Impediment?
Hunt, Erika
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v31 n11 p863-881 Nov 2007
While the strategy of funding both systems provides an incentive for both school districts and community colleges to participate with dual enrollment, the current fiscal environment has drawn attention to the inefficient use of the dual funding structure. This article highlights the results of a case study on Florida's dual enrollment program documenting how over a 20-year period policymakers offered different financial incentives as an inducement to greater participation among districts and community colleges. The article documents how the current state fiscal condition has altered lawmaker's motivations for supporting dual enrollment. It concludes by describing the implications of this on community college participation with dual enrollment. (Contains 1 figure.)
