What is most important in an investment plan is not the cost of the investment, but the relationship of benefits to costs--the internal rate of return. Without an overall plan intended to reflect the relative size of benefit flows, there will be a strong tendency for costs to dominate the system. Highly skilled administrators who succeed in "keeping costs down" are often lauded for this, while leading them to expand programs with low rates of return at the expense of those with higher rates. To avoid substantial opportunity losses imposed on society and students, community colleges need to examine their planning approaches to avoid these gross errors, to bring the system closer to maximizing benefits to society and students

Although the major factors determining curriculum mix are known, little has been done to measure the relative importance of each factor. Using the data gathered by questionnaire from North Carolina community colleges and technical institutes, this study tested the hypotheses that local labor market structures influence curricular offerings, and that budgetary allocation procedures within the educational system create internal monetary incentives which affect curricular offerings. Least squares regression analysis indicated that curricular offerings were positively related to absolute size of the "using" industry but negatively related to its relative size. Data received from the North Carolina Department of Community Colleges confirmed the second hypothesis, that curriculum mix is affected by the local administrators' budgetary allocations. This can result in a drift in curriculum away from optimality toward a position more "profitable" to the local administrator in terms of budgetary considerations. (Bh)

An Economist's View of Planning Problems in Community College Systems. Occasional Paper No. 10 by Robert M Fearn( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Major factors that have led to the recent concern and heavy involvement in educational research and planning are: (1) society's resources are being used to finance educational activities; (2) the role of education in the economic growth; and (3) the increased recognition that the quantity of education influences the individual's level of income and, hence, the distribution of income among individuals. The concept of investment in human knowledge and skills, I.E., human capital, provides an important theoretical framework for discussing educational planning. Educational activities are viewed primarily as investment activities. The student is viewed as a demander of educational services and as a supplier of labor and human capital services in the employment market. The educational institution or organization is viewed as an open system operating in a national or in an international economy and society. The three major types of planning used to guide community college systems are: (1) the manpower requirements or "needs" approach, (2) the social demand approach, and (3) the benefit-cost or rate of return approach. The manpower requirements approach has been the most widely used. The benefit-cost or rate of return approach is particularly well suited for the analysis of occupational education at community colleges. Each of the planning approaches used by and available to the community college has substantial limitations, but the available methods can avoid gross errors and can bring the system closer to maximizing social benefits.
