  • Higher education and student funding

    Date: Wednesday 18 February Time: 18:30 - 20:00 Venue: CLM.4.02 Speakers: Nick Barr, Tim Leunig, Nona Buckley-Irvine Chair: Paul Kelly The political consequences of the Coalition’s student fees policy have affected the government in a number of ways. Potential change to the funding of universities and students remains highly contentious and subject to reform. Fee levels will be an issue in the 2015 election. Differences in policy between England and Scotland remain contentious. In the longer-term, pressure on ‘unprotected’ public expenditure is likely to reduce HE funding still further, creating greater need for a wider range of university income. The way in which students fund their education, and over what period, has profound impacts. This panel will look at the options facing the part...

    Funding Public Higher Education Post-Stimulus Congress passed the landmark American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 (ARRA) to offset the effects of one of the worst economic recessions in decades. As part of that law, Congress designated nearly $100 billion for education programs, including the $48.6 billion State Fiscal Stabilization Fund to help states maintain K-12 and higher education funding. While much has been said about how states used these funds for K-12 education, most have overlooked the impact these funds had on public institutions of higher education. Yet for the past three years State Fiscal Stabilization Funds have helped keep public colleges and universities afloat, tuition bills lower than they otherwise would have been, and may even have spurred innovation in a f...

The Roma Education Fund (REF) celebrates ten years of working to close the gap in educational achievements between Roma and non-Roma. Since 2005, REF has led the way across 16 European countries to expand access, ensure equity, and improve educational outcomes for tens of thousands of Roma from preschool to higher education. Partnership makes change possible, and on the occasion of our tenth anniversary, REF would like to say a big thank you to our donors, supporters and board members who share our vision and have done so much to assist our work, enabled us to expand our activities, and increase our impact on the ground. A special note of appreciation and gratitude goes out to REF staff, whose dedication and professionalism has made REF what it is today, and directly contributes to changing the lives of tens of thousands of young Roma across the region. In 2005 REF reached 5,000 beneficiaries; 10 years later the number of its annual beneficiaries has increased twentyfold and now exceeds 100,000. REF supported more than 60,600 children with direct enrollment in early childhood development programs, and dropout-prevention programs have reached over 113,000 Roma pupils. In ten years REF has developed working partnerships with many school principals and mayors; collaborated with local and national authorities; and forged close links with Roma communities, empowering and actively engaging Roma parents. REF would like to thank all those partners working in the schools and the communities, who strive every day to make equal access to quality schooling and better educational outcomes a reality for Roma students. While this is a time to celebrate our achievements, there is much that remains to be done. REF’s investment in early childhood development programs, support for Roma children to succeed mainstream schools, and services to prevent early-school leaving have made a huge impact. In Romania, for example, 80 percent of Roma pupils now complete primary school, compared to 66 percent 10 years ago. From kindergarten to university REF has demonstrated what needs to be done to make equal opportunities a reality for Roma pupils. REF has pioneered successful approaches to desegregate schools and improve the quality of education so that Roma pupils can thrive and succeed in secure and inclusive learning environments. However, the reality is that today very many disadvantaged Roma children do not go to preschool; too many children are educated in segregated schools and classrooms; and dropout rates remain high. Until the cycles of discrimination and disadvantage are broken, REF will persist in its mission to meet these challenges, with model interventions that successfully promote inclusive, quality education for Roma children, proving that positive change is possible. We look forward to celebrating the day when REF can wholeheartedly state that its work is done!

Do you have a child or grandchild & you have several years before college, but you are already worried how you will pay for it? Let’s discuss two great options for this purpose: a 529 Plan and an Educational IRA – they are similar, however each has specific features that are appealing Let's look at each individually. What is a 529 Plan? It is a qualified tuition program designed specifically to save for college. It was created by Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code. What are the benefits of a 529? Tax-deferred growth on earnings and federal income tax free distributions. There are unlimited contributions and no age limitations. What are the limitations of a 529? The funds must be used for higher education, they cannot be used for high school or grade school. How does a 529 work? A person (account holder) opens an account and he/she can make a lump sum deposit or automatic deposits on a regular basis and then select investment options. The account holder will designate a beneficiary for whom the funds will be used to pay for qualified higher education expenses. What can the funds be used for? The funds can be used for any qualified higher education expense including, but not limited to: tuition, books, fees, room & board, and laptops. What is an Educational IRA? It is a qualified tuition program designed specifically to save for college. The Educational IRA is also known as Coverdell IRA. What are the benefits of an Educational IRA? Tax-deferred growth on earnings and federal income tax free distributions. Funds can be used for private schooling between the age of 1 – 12. What are the limitations of an Educational IRA? Annual contribution maximum of $2,000, and could possibly be less depending on income. All contributions must be taken by age 30. How does an Educational IRA work? A person (account holder) opens an account and he/she can make a lump sum deposit or automatic deposits on a regular basis and then select investment options. The account holder will designate a beneficiary for whom the funds will be used to pay for qualified higher education expenses. What can the funds be used for? The funds can be used for any qualified higher education expense including, but not limited to: tuition, books, fees, room & board, and laptops, and can also be used for private schooling between the age of 1-12. In summary, there are two main differences. 529 Plan is for Higher Education Only and an Educational IRA is for Higher Education or Private School 529 Plan has no annual maximum contributions and Educational IRA's have maximum contribution limits. If you have questions about either of this types of college savings, give us a call and we can set up an appointment for you to discuss them with our Investment SpecialistPaula.

Funding Public Higher Education Post-Stimulus Congress passed the landmark American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in 2009 (ARRA) to offset the effects of one of the worst economic recessions in decades. As part of that law, Congress designated nearly $100 billion for education programs, including the $48.6 billion State Fiscal Stabilization Fund to help states maintain K-12 and higher education funding. While much has been said about how states used these funds for K-12 education, most have overlooked the impact these funds had on public institutions of higher education. Yet for the past three years State Fiscal Stabilization Funds have helped keep public colleges and universities afloat, tuition bills lower than they otherwise would have been, and may even have spurred innovation in a few states. Now, these funds are gone and state finances have hardly returned to pre-recession health. What will this mean for college students and public institutions of higher education now that they will have to rely solely on state and local support and tuition revenue? Join us on for a discussion about the future of funding for public institutions of higher education in the post-stimulus world. Panelists will include experts on state and postsecondary education finance and a public university president who has implemented reforms in response to shrinking state support. The discussion will be framed by findings from a recently completed New America research series on how states used State Fiscal Stabilization Funds to support higher education. Participants Featured Speakers Nick Johnson Vice President for State Fiscal Policy Center on Budget and Policy Priorities Dr. Paul Lingenfelter President State Higher Education Executive Officers Dr. Stephen Jordan President Metropolitan State College of Denver Moderator Jennifer Cohen Senior Policy Analyst, Education Policy Program New America Foundation http://www.newamerica.net/events/2012/funding_public_higher_education
