College Students Want to See Better Service for Higher Tuition

2002-05-02

By Christy Watson - The Oklahoman

 

Several Oklahoma college students said Wednesday they won't oppose tuition increases for state schools as long as students see improvements in academic services. They also urged lawmakers not to cut university funding more than necessary.

Alex Yaffe, student body president at the University of Oklahoma, said he understands the state is facing a "financially challenging" year amid a $350 million revenue shortfall. Students support the proposed 7 percent increase at OU, he said.

He said OU President David Boren has acted responsibly in keeping students informed, and students are ready to "step up" by paying more for their education.

Yaffe's comments came during a state Regents for Higher Education public hearing over a proposal to increase tuition and fees by as much as 7 percent for in-state students and 9 percent for out-of-state students. Some other schools also have requested increases in student fees.

Several state colleges and universities have proposed tuition hikes, which must be approved by the regents at the colleges, then by state regents. If the 7 percent increases are approved, it would the second consecutive year for the maximum increases allowed by law.

State regents Vice Chairman Carl Renfro said the board won't approve tuition increases if school officials don't deem it necessary. Colleges must submit their tuition increase requests by May 18; state regents will take final action on whether to grant increases at their May 24 meeting.

This marks the second year regents -- and not the Legislature -- have had the authority to sanction tuition increases. Lawmakers delegated the authority to the regents for five years.

The state's higher education budget cuts already amount to $17.5 million this year, which means next year's budget also will be short that much. Higher education also took a $14 million hit from a gas and oil revenue fund shortfall, which the Legislature may or may not compensate for.

Increasing tuition by the maximum allowed by law at all state colleges and universities would raise about $15 million for higher education, officials have said.

Regents also have said they want Oklahoma students to pay about a third of their college costs. They pay about 27 percent. Other states' universities are considering tuition increases of as much as 16 percent.

Clint Morgan, a student at Murray State College in Tishomingo, said students there also supported an increase as long as it is in line with community college increases.

Barrett Ellis, a National Merit Scholar and chairman of OU's undergraduate student congress, said enrollment growth already has led to parking problems, class size increases, stressed-out professors and more graduate students teaching upper- level classes.

He said those issues should be enough anecdotal evidence to justify charging students more to improve services in the face of a state revenue shortfall.

Students urged legislators also to do their part in not cutting higher education budgets any further.

Glen Johnson, president of Southeastern Oklahoma State University, said Oklahoma ranks near the bottom of states for tuition costs; a student survey found tuition at state schools is a "great buy."

Ashley Bowen, chairman of the regents' student advisory board, urged regents to consider a graduation contract that would allow students who obtain a degree within a certain amount of time to have a stable tuition rate immune from increases.

Oklahoma State University's student government also has endorsed a 7 percent hike.

Fannie Bates, an OU graduate student, said OU administration is top-heavy and the school needs to better manage its money.

Graduate Mike Wright said he could find no justification for the increase and urged regents to look at OU's academic quality before granting the university's tuition increase request.

 

Budget for 'Big Three' Educational Agencies Discussed

 

By Thomas Larson - Staff Writer

 (GIT)  The Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Education met with representatives from the state's largest educational entities--the Department of Education, the Regents for Higher Education and the Department of Career and Technology Education.

Chairman Cal Hobson, D-Lexington, began the meeting by responding to House Minority Leader Fred Morgan's, R-Oklahoma, assertion that the current budget plan would result in cuts to the school lunch program and to textbooks.

            "That is patently false," Hobson said. "No cuts are planned for school lunches; no cuts are planned for textbooks."

            Hobson and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Sandy Garrett further explained that the state would not be allowed to cut the state funds which are matched with federal money to provide free and reduced lunches.

            While the line-item which provides for free and reduced-price meals would not be hit at all, the second school lunch line-item, state assistance to districts to help defray the costs of all lunches, would be reduced 4.21 percent.

            That cut would not mean fewer children could qualify for free and reduced lunches, because those guidelines are set at the federal level, Garrett said, nor would it mean districts would be unable to serve lunches.

            The State Department of Education, in total is taken a cut of 1.6 percent. Because most of the Department's money goes into the state aid formula, that is where most of the cut will be.

            "The majority of these cuts will be in the formula," Garrett said, "because there's no other place for it unless you want to cut those line items 10, 20, 30 percent."

            Of the $36.8 million that the Department must reduce expenditures, $26.5 million would come out of the formula--a reduction in aid to districts of 1.64 percent. The proposed budget for the Department as a whole for FY 2003 is slightly more than $2.002 billion.

            The remaining amount of the cut would be made up by cutting a variety of line items, mostly cut at 4.21 percent. Some programs, such as ongoing grants and textbook funding, as well as the federal school lunch matching, would be held harmless. Other smaller or ineffective programs, and some one-year grants, would be cut more severely or completely eliminated.

            Garrett explained that the Department went through each budget line item, set priorities, cut a few programs that were less than effective, but still had to make many tough decisions.

            "We don't want to cut any of these programs," she said.

            The Board of Career and Technology Education is getting cut 1.5 percent, or about $6.6 million. Director Ann Benson said the cuts will be absorbed in several ways. The Department plans to decrease spending on Business, Industry and Adult Education, letting businesses float more of the bill.

            Also, direct support to schools will be cut some, though the Department has specified that schools need to cut as far from the classroom as possible. CareerTech also plans to cut some technology assistance to high schools, though not the programs for high school students.

            In addition, Benson said, the agency has been under a hiring freeze all year, so they will save some by not filling vacant positions.

            The Regents, after adjusting for the removal of one-time funds and the transfer of the Quartz Mountain Lodge from the Tourism and Recreation Department, the cut the agency will be facing also amounts to about 1.6 percent.

            One particular concern for the Regents is the performance of two revolving funds filled with gross production tax revenue. The Regents approached the Legislature earlier in the session to request $14 million to make up for revenue in the funds which never materialized because of bottomed-out natural gas prices.

            Maryanne Maletz, vice chancellor for budget and finance, said the projected loss is now up to about $18.1 million, though she admitted the Office of State Finance still says the funds will only be short $14 million.

            Hobson said the subcommittee had already figured on giving the Regents the $14 million, but said it may be difficult to find another $4 million. But, Hobson said, the committee would see what it could do.

            Hobson said that the subcommittee was also planning on providing the Regents with another of their supplemental requests--$2.6 million to help fund the Oklahoma Higher Learning Access Program.

 

Legislator Contends New Law Will Result in More High School Grads

 

By MIKE W. RAY - House Media Division Director

OKLAHOMA CITY -- State Rep. Larry Ferguson contends that enactment of House Bill 2886 will result in more Oklahoma high school graduates.

House Bill 2886 by Ferguson, R-Cleveland, and Sen. Mike Morgan, D-Stillwater, allows "contextual" math and science classes to count as credit toward a high school diploma.

"We allow disruptive students to graduate, by taking 'alternative education' courses that may be more simplified than a conventional course," Ferguson noted. "But until now we have not given high school students credit for vocational courses they've taken to prepare themselves for the work force."

A compromise version of HB 2886 cleared the Legislature unopposed in both the House and the Senate, and was signed Monday by Gov. Frank Keating. The bill becomes law 90 days after the Legislature adjourns.

Existing state law requires Oklahoma high school students to complete a core curriculum in language, mathematics, science, social studies and arts in order to earn a high school diploma. "Such curricula shall provide for the teaching of a hands-on career exploration program in cooperation with technology center schools," state law provides. The core curriculum "shall be designed to teach the competencies for which students shall be tested ... and shall be designed to prepare all students for employment and/or postsecondary education."

Under HB 2886, students will be able to count "contextual" mathematics and science courses "which enhance technology preparation".  Those classes can be taught at a comprehensive high school or at a technology center school, by a certified teacher, provided the course is taken in the student's junior or senior year and if the State Board of Education and the student's local school board concur.

State law defines "contextual methodology" to mean "academic content and skills taught by utilizing real-world problems and projects in a way that helps students understand the application of that knowledge."

HB 2886 also provides that math and science courses taught at a technology center by a teacher who is certified in the subject area, and when taken in the student's junior or senior year, will count toward high school graduation. Applied biology/chemistry classes will continue to count, too.

            HB 2886 "recognizes the value of teaching mathematics applications and science related to business and industry and the world of work," said Ferguson.

"We should do whatever we can to encourage students to take technology-oriented courses," said Ferguson, former president of the Oklahoma State School Boards Association. "They will be more likely to graduate from high school, and at the same time they will be qualified to join the work force. Otherwise they risk becoming a drag on society by dropping out of school and joining the welfare rolls or, worse, becoming criminals and getting sent to prison."

Backers of HB 2886 also hope the legislation will boost sagging enrollment at Career Tech centers.

The number of high school students enrolled in Career Tech courses declined more than 350 last year, and fell by more than 860 in five years, records reflect. A total of 15,505 high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors participated in classes at Career Tech centers during the 1996-97 school year, compared to 14,641 in 2000-01.

The Oklahoma Business and Education Coalition (OBEC) sent a letter to Ferguson that was critical of his legislation. It "undermines the high academic standard in math and science by allowing academic credit to be given for courses taught at Technology Centers," OBEC complained April 8.

But Jack Smith, chairman of General Motors, recommended that Career Tech courses focus on the technology needed by today's workers. "We are very concerned that continually adding more and more courses will reduce and, in many cases, eliminate the opportunity for students to participate in much-needed high-quality Career Tech program," Smith wrote in a letter to Keating.

Because of the concern expressed by OBEC, language was inserted in HB 2886 which requires any Career Tech courses to be "approved by the State Board of Education" before they can count toward a student's graduation.

Ferguson said the complaints are not between Career Tech and secondary education. Rather, he said, "It is a misunderstanding on the part of urban education advocates who do not understand -- and will not accept the fact -- that not every student will attend college. Consequently, we need to make allowances for the students who plan to attend 'vo-tech' for specialized training."

Ferguson said the proverbial "bottom line" is, students are obtaining the same knowledge in a different form. "In Career Tech classes, students learn 'real world' applications of math and science rather than theoretical applications in a traditional classroom."

Supporters of House Bill 2886 related several examples of the practical application of math and science courses taught at Career Tech centers.

     -- Career Tech students enrolled in programs such as nursing, surgical technician, radiation technician, dental technician, physical therapy assistants and other specialized licensed medical areas receive rigorous instruction in anatomy, physiology and science concepts.

     -- Students in telecommunications, electronics, industrial maintenance and automation classes utilize algebra, trigonometry, geometry, and physics concepts.

     -- High school students in computer aided design programs must be able to use geometry, trigonometry, algebra and mathematics to design objects and products for manufacturing or construction.

     -- Welding and carpentry students must be able to use math and geometry in order to build and fabricate objects. Students apply these concepts to determine the lengths of rafters, to build at various angles, to determine the size of materials, calculate square footage, estimate costs, etc.

     -- Auto and diesel technology students must understand the scientific principles behind hydraulic brakes and power brakes. When trouble-shooting automotive electronic circuits, students must understand the concepts of electricity and electronics. In environmental areas, students are taught the science principles behind exhaust emissions, air/fuel ratios, etc.

     -- Machine tool technology students utilize algebra and trigonometry to determine slopes, angles and dimensions. Students utilize complex instruments to calculate precise measurements and calculations for the manufacturing process. Students also use geometry to solve machining problems.

Co-authors of HB 2886 included Reps. Larry D. Roberts, D-Miami; Dale Turner, D-Holdenville; Dale Wells, D-Cushing; Barbara Staggs, D-Muskogee; Dennis Adkins, R-Tulsa; Mike O'Neal and Curt Roggow, both R-Enid; Dale DeWitt, R-Braman; David Braddock, D-Altus; James Covey, D-Custer City; Abe Deutschendorf, D-Lawton; Mary Easley, D-Tulsa; Kent Friskup, R-Chandler; Al Lindley, D-Oklahoma City; Elmer Maddux, R-Mooreland; Ray Miller, D-Whitefield; Bill Mitchell, D-Lindsay; Clay Pope, D-Loyal; Paul Roan, D-Tishomingo; Joe Sweeden, D-Pawhuska; Mike Tyler, D-Sapulpa; Purcy Walker, D-Elk City; and Jim Wilson, D-Tahlequah.
