Breaking the social contract : the fiscal crisis in California higher education by Roger W Benjamin( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The central finding of this report, commissioned by the California Education Round Table, is that the present course of higher education in California--in which student demand, tuition, and costs are rising much faster than public funding--cannot be sustained. Unless effective steps are taken to alter current trends, sizable numbers of Californians will be denied access to higher education within the next 20 years. If that should happen, many will find themselves excluded from the growing number of occupations that require postsecondary course work for employment. This education bottleneck is narrowing at a time when economic inequality is increasing in the state and social demographics are shifting. The research offers recommendations for coping with this crisis that emphasize the need for greater public support of higher education in California along with comprehensive institutional reform so that available resources can be reallocated and other changes implemented to streamline operations. California must devise an effective strategic plan now for developing its human resources
Federal student aid and tuition growth : examining the relationship by Arthur M Hauptman( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The question of whether federal student aid has fueled the growth in costs and tuition at higher education institutions has been the source of heated debate for at least a decade now. To assess the possible effects of federal student aid policies on the growth in costs and tuition, this paper examines the extent to which federal student aid programs covered total costs of attendance in 1975, 1985, and 1995. One finding is that the proportion of total costs of attendance met through federal student loans has increased dramatically over the past two decades. Another finding is that the increasing availability of federal aid, particularly loans, is not among the main causes of tuition growth but has clearly cushioned the effects of that growth on consumers. To address the fact that federal student aid policies may have affected the growth in costs and tuition to some extent over time, recommendations are made for steps the federal government could take to reduce any such effects in the future. These steps include a partial cost reimbursement model and reducing the regulatory and reporting requirements of colleges based on their performance in the federal aid programs

Breaking the social contract : the fiscal crisis in higher education by Santa Monica, Ca Council for Aid to Education( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the results of a 2-year study of the fiscal condition of higher education in the United States. The study found that at a time when the level of education needed for productive employment is increasing, college costs and demand are rising much faster than funding. Unless sweeping changes are made to control costs, millions of Americans will be denied the opportunity to go to college, further exacerbating growing wage disparities between rich and poor and threatening the economic and social stability of the nation. Until now, institutions have covered rising costs by sharp tuition increases; however, such increases will shortly begin to keep Americans from pursuing higher education. And if future tuition increases are capped at the rate of inflation, colleges and universities will face a massive shortfall of resources by 2015. The report recommends that (1) political leaders reallocate public resources to reflect the growing importance of higher education; (2) institutions improve performance-based assessment, faculty productivity, and internal accountability; (3) institutions pursue greater mission differentiation; (4) institutions develop sharing arrangements to improve productivity; and (5) that all citizens be encouraged to pursue some form of postsecondary education.

Sustaining change in schools : a role for business by Diana Wyllie Rigden( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the serious efforts of the decade-long school reform movement, there is little indication that American students are making dramatic gains in academic achievement or mastering the skills they need for productive lives. Can companies support education reform in ways that both "make a difference" and are compatible with the financial, human, and material resources they have available? This publication considers how the business community can structure its involvement in elementary and secondary education in order to promote system-based strategies for reform. Following the introduction, chapter 1 describes the need for schools and communities to reaffirm their focus on increased student learning, suggesting how business can help educators define educational expectations. Chapter 2 summarizes the apparent consensus on how to produce better outcomes. It briefly describes the kinds of changes needed in the education system, key strategies for change, and ideas for measuring their effectiveness. The third chapter describes strategies to help schools sustain their capacity for change at five different levels--the classroom, school, district, community, and policy arena. The final chapter outlines how individual companies can identify appropriate actions and develop an effective role for supporting comprehensive, long-term reform. Lists of resource organizations and precollege advisory board members are included. An enclosed handout/poster maps strategies for involvement. (LMI)
School restructuring : designing schools for better student learning by Diane W Rigden( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet examines the role of business in school restructuring and the types of precollege activities in which business is currently engaged. Chapter 1 briefly discusses what restructuring means including its salient features and general method of operation. The second chapter looks at why restructuring is so difficult, and identifies two challenges faced by business in school restructuring--to develop a consensus for change, and to create a stable environment that encourages system changes. Chapter 3 identifies the characteristics of restructured schools and examines the changing roles and relationships involved. Chapter 4, by far the longest in the booklet, offers examples of programs that are designed to achieve the following outcomes: increased student learning; extended teacher capacity; innovative school systems; and effective measurement of academic success. The final chapter offers suggestions to help business leaders choose entry points into feasible education support programs that are consonant with their corporation's interests and resources. Guidelines are also provided for implementing and managing the projects they fund. The appendices contain a business plan for education support and a list of resource organizations. (Contains 14 references.) (Lmi)
Intelligent giving : insights and strategies for higher education donors by Jonathan P Caulkins( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although most major gifts are profoundly motivated by charitable intentions, the noble impulse to give to higher education can quickly generate complicated choices. Which school? Which program? Under what terms or conditions? Even very talented people who have enjoyed exceptionally successful careers in business and other fields can become disoriented by academe's idiosyncrasies. This book provides an intellectual framework for guiding prospective major donors in giving more effectively to higher education. It supplies some insight into the higher education sector, donor opportunities, the development process, and how to think about and get the most from a "negotiation" with the institution of the donor's choice. The insights and strategies are culled by a RAND research team mainly from interviews with development officers, institutional leaders, and donors themselves. Ultimately the giving process that works best for any donor will depend on his or her individual interests and needs. The best advice is to be clear on what effect the donor wants his or her gift to have, to seek as much information on the school/situation as possible, and to consult with an attorney and a good financial advisor at all stages of the giving process

The road less traveled : redesigning the higher education system of Nevada( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the results of qualitative and quantitative analyses of how well the higher education system in Nevada will meet the challenges of the future of current trends and patterns continue. The report contains three parts that present the data analysis, the key issues the Nevada Board of Regents confronts, with possible responses to them, and action items to consider for next steps. Interviews were conducted with key System, business, legislative, and educational leaders in the state, and data were collected from various campuses and the Chancellor's office. Findings suggest that Nevada must make significant changes to meet its goals in the face of rapid population growth. The scenarios reviewed through computer models involve significant increases in spending and significant increases in the performance of existing institutions. It appears that meeting the significant challenges faced by higher education in Nevada through bold changes may in fact be less challenging than attempting to meet them with incremental changes to the current system. Recommendations center on: (1) quality and access; (2) efficiency and accountability; (3) development of an effective assessment of student learning; (4) finance reforms; (5) separation of the funding of research and instruction; (6) refinement of the funding formula; (7) reevaluation of the fee setting structure; (8) changes in student financial aid policies; and (9) establishment of as simple a system of governance as possible. Appendixes describe development of a value-added measurement of undergraduate education, goals and criteria for evaluation, the data and computer simulation methodology of this study. (Contains 1 table and 13 figures.) (Sld)

Looking to the future : health professions education in Texas by Richard Rettig( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Texas higher education system faces severe challenges in responding to the twin demands placed on it by economic growth and by the increasing problems of access to higher education that many Texans experience. This report presents the results of analyses of how well that system will meet the future needs for health care professionals, including for physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals. This study was conducted in parallel and informally coordinated with the Task Force on Health Professions Education established by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board Planning Committee. However, the work reported here reflects the independent analysis and judgment of RAND researchers. A companion analysis addresses the question of how well the higher education system in Texas will likely meet the challenges of the future if current trends and patterns continue. It identifies the kinds of changes needed to realign higher education in Texas with these challenges
