8 p. 
Summary

Vermont's Blue Ribbon Commission on Higher Education was appointed in the summer of 1973 to consider major issues involving Vermont's postsecondary education programs. This report addresses the major problems in statewide coordination. Internally, fragmented planning and policy implementation are considered, and externally, multiple voices and statistics are found to cause accountability problems. Further obstacles include difficulties in making effective use of limited resources and meeting postsecondary education needs. Three options for statewide coordination are described: (1) continuing as the only state without a statewide planning organization; (2) establishing a single governing board; and (3) establishing a single state coordinating board. In public hearings, a single governing board was the favored proposal. The commission recommended establishing the goal of more effective planning as a state policy and establishing a task force from key institutions to make a recommendation to the 1975 state legislature on a permanent statewide postsecondary organization and planning and information systems to support it. Appended are statistical tables showing Vermont high school graduates in postsecondary education, 1965-1972; number and percent of 1972 Vermont public and private high school graduates entering school; a comparision of 1972-73 college tuition and fees in several states; Vermont general fund expenditures on higher education, 1971-74; a map of Vermont vocational education centers; and the commission's witnesses.
