Our chapter: "State Policy Response to the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997."
Kristin D. Conklin and Joni E. Finney

The Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 is the largest single increase in federal funding for higher education since the GI Bill. Conklin and Finney examine these new federal tax provisions designed to help middle and upper-middle income families pay for college, including the Hope and Lifetime Learning
tax credits. Their chapter explores the impact of this new law, including how students in states with low tuition and/or generous financial aid programs will be affected. Recommendations for state response are offered to encourage a new consensus on how the state and federal governments can better share responsibility for meeting the public purposes of educational opportunity.

Other topics discussed in the book include:

  • how families pay for college
  • the need-analysis system for student aid
  • improving college success for low-income students
  • the politics of higher education policymaking
  • undergraduate borrowing
  • merit-based versus need-based award
