Summary

Problems associated with state support for community colleges are discussed with particular emphasis on situations where local college districts are responsible for providing a portion of total institutional revenue. Three of these problems, relating to the equity and efficiency of how state aid is distributed, are: (1) the integration of direct state support for community colleges into a system of state support for other public education facilities; (2) the consideration of local district wealth; and (3) tuition, including its relationship to the other problems and its impact on students. Technical problems, such as how to measure district wealth, are discussed, and current systems of state support are described. The latter portion of the document examines the community college finance systems in Mississippi, New Jersey, California, and Illinois, especially as they relate to the problem of inter-district equity. District wealth varied substantially between community college districts and variations in total revenues were related, in some cases strongly, to variations in wealth. Tuition levels were also related to wealth, although the direction of the relationship was not uniform among the states examined. One question requiring additional research is how districts would respond to changes in state support designed to "ex ante" eliminate wealth differences. A bibliography is appended. (Author/MB)
