Financial Aid: A Resource for Improving Educational Opportunities. Working Paper, Preliminary Draft by Kenneth M Deitch( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Financial aid in American higher education is discussed with a primary focus on undergraduate education. Some major issues pertaining to public policy and pricing in higher education are considered, and the practice of subsidizing students, with special attention to the role of the federal government, is briefly reviewed. Information regarding access to higher education for the poor, minorities, women, and the middle class is presented, and the source of funds for financial aid and the methods of distributing those funds are discussed. In the private sector, private money provided the subsidy while in the state systems public institutional support permitted tuition to remain relatively low, and expansion of capacity made it possible for virtually anyone seeking a place to find one. The federal government is a relatively new part of this enterprise, but in a fairly short period of time its role has grown enormously. Promoting equality of opportunity has been the federal government's single most visible and identifiable goal with respect to higher education. Information about participation in higher education based on family income, race, family income and aptitude taken jointly, and sex is presented. The state of the job market for college graduates is briefly considered. The determination of a student's need for financial aid includes taking into account the expected parents' contribution. Calculation of student eligibility index for the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant program is covered. (Sw)
When Does an Increase in the Cost of Education Lead to an Increase in a Beog? a Note by Kenneth M Deitch( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

With the aid of a diagram, an analysis is presented of the circumstances under which a Basic Educational Opportunity Grant (beog) award can increase when the recipient's college raises its charges. The starting point for the analysis is a specification of how to compute beog awards as a function of the cost of education (coe) and the expected family contribution (efc). Examples are cited which demonstrate that under some circumstances an institution can have a windfall at the expense of the federal government by raising its charges. However, an unsophisticated attempt to capture that windfall could backfire. (Sw)
The National Educational Loan Bank: A Proposal for Improving the System of Lending for Higher Education. Working Paper, Preliminary Draft by Kenneth M Deitch( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A National Education Loan Bank (nelb) is proposed as an alternative to existing federal loan programs for education, such as the National Direct Student Loan program and the Guaranteed Student Loan program. The history and structures of these two programs are detailed: financing, costs, insurance arrangements, agencies, volume, and interest rates. The proposed nelb has these features: (1) it is intended to greatly reduce the federal subsidy that keeps the other programs' interest rates low; (2) it would operate entirely on capital the government raises through borrowing; (3) it would transfer the task and paper work of loan origination from the bank to the financial aid officer, a substantial savings to the program; (4) it encourages and enables loans to parents as well as to students; and (5) it calls for collection to be managed by the Internal Revenue Service to minimize default. It is felt that with this program the cost per dollar loaned may drop 37.5 percent, some complexities would be eliminated, and the volume of loans would increase by $62.5 billion. Issues raised by this approach to educational loans--such as the principle of govenment subsidy and the reduced program flexibility--are discussed. (Mse)

The preparations for the voyage and the trip itself are accounted for, as well as Columbus's discovery of the New World and interactions with the "Indians." The book also seeks to place the significance of Columbus's discovery in perspective for young readers. A message from President George Bush focusing on that theme precedes the story. (Db)

Some Aspects of the Economics of Higher Education. Working Paper by Kenneth M Deitch( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A discussion of the economics of higher education begins with an outline of the history of higher education, and a profile of American postsecondary institutions in the recent past and the present. An analysis of the outlook for enrollments follows. Data are given on enrollment trends since 1951, according to sector (public versus private), institution type, and degree level and subject area. Demographic profiles illustrate a forecast of enrollment trends through 2,000. The geographic distributionof the traditional college-age population is outlined, and graduate and professional education populations are also discussed. Financial data on recent funding and funding trends in private and public institutions and on faculty illustrate a discussion of revenue and fiscal capacity, especially as they are affected by the federal government. It is concluded that increasingly intense competition for students will be important in higher education economics in the 1980s, and there will be continuing efforts to economize. The intellectual vitality of the faculty is seen as important to the health of higher education, though the demand for new, younger faculty members is foreseen to be very small in the near future. Appended are a list of references and suggestions for further reading. (Mse)

Pricing and Financial Aid in American Higher Education: Some Interactions. Preliminary Draft by Kenneth M Deitch( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Issues are discussed relating to student financial aid and aid policies in higher education. A review of the economic outlook for higher education in the near future is given, with attention to enrollment trends, rising costs, and age distribution for faculty for 1972 and projected for 1990. Competition for students is discussed. The current debate over whether the economic burden on families is increasing is discussed in detail, illustrated by data on students costs in a number of institutions. Pricing and eligibility policies and formulas are discussed and charted. Elements of the discussion are student expense budgets, expected parental contribution, and public versus private sectors. It is noted that the current system of student financial aid has two important characteristics to consider: (1) it is a thoroughly developed, pervasive, and well-functioning system of price discrimination; and (2) the system's outcome depends on two forces: those establishing prices and those establishing policy for adjusting them, which in higher education are often separate groups. It is concluded that the present system has these results: it helps eliminate the tuition gap; and the expected family contribution as a percentage of family income is at a maximum for the family that just fails to qualify for aid. Several problems are foreseen in the future of the current system: sensitivity to student costs, and competitive pricing; loss of financial privacy of families of applicants for aid; efforts to depart from the need-based system to attract students; and a need for fairness in treatment of independent students.
