What's Happening to Public Higher Education?






Pub Date: 
Publisher:  Johns Hopkins University Press
Summary: American public higher education appears to be in a state of crisis. Declining funding for public colleges and universities has led to declining faculty salaries relative to private competitors' faculty salaries and increases in tuition, threatening access and compromising quality. Here, Ronald G. Ehrenberg and a team of experts examine the current state of public higher education, the public policies that shape it, ...and what the future may hold for institutions and their students, faculty, and administrators. Sounding a warning about the declining condition of public higher education, Ehrenberg and his contributors make a compelling case for increasing support for these institutions. An overview of national trends and the forces that drive them is followed by studies of the financial complexities found in representative states (California, Georgia, and Texas, among others), an analysis of the implications of these developments, and prescriptions for improving public higher education at the state and national levels. In concluding chapters, contributors provide valuable assessments of the critical issues and their practical implications -- from the privatization of public universities to state policy initiatives.
