The Institute for State Studies The Institute for State Studies (ISS), is a non-profit foundation devoted to the development of strategies to resolve public policy dilemmas resulting from new technology. The Institute is located at Western Governors University in Salt Lake City, Utah and has three programmatic areas of focus.
  • New models of governance made necessary by information technology
  • Using technology to accelerate the velocity and flexibility of education
  • Increasing the speed and decreasing the cost of environmental progress
Financial support for ISS is derived from an expanding endowment, contracts for project administration and ongoing development activities. The Institute funds scholarly research, educational initiatives and opinion leader gatherings as the primary means of meeting its mission. Scholarly Research
The Institute for State Studies draws on academics and leaders from various economic and social disciplines to do policy research within the defined programmatic areas. Two examples of ISS research currently underway are: Barriers to Competency Measured Education Systems The level of education necessary for an information age workforce has dramatically increased. Most workers change jobs and even careers numerous times. This is changing the nature of the demands being placed on educational institutions. For centuries students have traveled to campus because knowledge was stored, enhanced and disseminated there. Consequently, institutional “credit” became the “currency” of academic accomplishment. Under a credit system, a student completing a set of courses prescribed by the school or college is awarded a degree. The student is presumed to have achieved sufficient mastery in the discipline of study based on the good standing of the institution. The greater the reputation of the school, the higher the student’s credential is valued in the marketplace.

MANDA TE DETERMINATIONS The Division of Local Mandates (DLM) responds to requests to determine if the local mandate law applies to various state actions with the potential to impose costs on Massachusetts cities and towns and to determine the cost impact. Approximately 70% of these requests come from municipal officials; the remainder originate from the Legislature.
Any municipality that requests a determination of the amount of state funding (if any) required by the mandate law is entitled to an individual cost appraisal (called a determination), specific to that particular city or town. As a result, a single mandate issue may generate dozens, or sometimes even hundreds, of requests for determinations. The Division of Local Mandates has also determined the estimated or actual cost impact of 35 issues for all 351 cities and towns and presented these findings to the Legislature for appropriation purposes. Accordingly, DLM has issued thousands of individual cost determinations based on approximately 300 mandate issues. Some examples of the issues reviewed by DLM follow.

1) Settlement and incorporation of the town or city. When was your town settled? How was it organized? Was it an original town or part of another earlier community? 2) Earliest settlement location (maps). What part of your community was settled first? Why do you think they chose this area? Find the location of your school site on an early map. What was the original use of the land? Compare to a recent map of your community. 3) Population changes. Who were the earliest people and where did they come from? What is the attraction of the community for newcomers? Compare numbers and kinds of ethnic groups over time.

9. FRAC - Post Welfare Reform Hunger Studies
ten large states 4 (California, Florida, Illinois, massachusetts, Michigan, New Eightyfourpercent of cities surveyed reported increased demand state studies.
A number of recent studies highlight continuing unacceptable levels of hunger and "food insecurity" in the wake of welfare reform. Even as many families move off assistance and into the workforce, low wages and unstable employment leave many of them without adequate access to food. At the same time, emergency food providers report continued long lines and requests for food, particularly among working families and households with children. The following are key food insecurity/hunger findings from recent welfare reform and emergency food studies. While some of these data are from 1997 before federal welfare law was fully implemented, they reflect both the beginning of implementation and, in a number of states, fuller implementation of work demonstration projects that were approved before 1996. National/Multi-State Studies of Hunger/Food Security The Urban Institute's "Snapshots of America's Families," In a 1997 study of families no longer receiving TANF assistance in ten large states (California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Texas), 36 percent of families surveyed reported that their children were eating less or skipping meals due to cost.

Some key facts from the study:
These trends spell a potential disaster for labor markets dependent on a steady supply of well-educated workers, the researchers said, and the negative impact on male poverty and incarceration rates as well as family formation is also substantial. Weekly and annual earnings of employed young adults correlated strongly with the number of school years they complete. In 2000, young male U.S. high school dropouts under age 30 earned an average of $13,000 versus $32,000 for those young males completing 16 years of schooling. And because economic success is often linked to social and civic engagement as well as marital behavior, these statistics provide even more cause for alarm as this next generation of male adults becomes increasingly unprepared for the realities of the labor market.
"After documenting the gender gap in college going rates among Boston high school graduates over the past several years, we decided to turn the calendar back and see how high school drop-out rates compound this trend. This is not a Boston or even a Massachusetts issue. It is a national issue with important economic and social implications,” said Neil Sullivan, director of the Boston Private Industry Council. "We need to be cautious and disciplined in analyzing why urban males are falling so far behind their female counterparts. In the meantime, we are examining all the youth initiatives sponsored by the PIC and taking affirmative steps to recruit more young men into programs that lead to further education and career success."

Katharine L. Bradbury is a Vice President and Economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, where she heads the regional section of the Research Department. Prior to joining the Bank in 1981, Ms. Bradbury worked as a research associate at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. and at the Institute for Research on Poverty at the University of Wisconsin. Earlier, she served as a Peace Corps volunteer in the Mariana Islands. Ms. Bradbury’s research focuses on the New England regional economy and issues regarding state and local public finance and income inequality. In the past few years, she has published studies of property tax limits’ effect on house prices and school enrollments, the extent to which economic expansions, and especially the long 1990s expansion, aid the disadvantaged by reducing their unemployment rates, and the degree to which the rise in the educational wage premium in the 1980s and 1990s varied among demographic groups. Ms. Bradbury earned her B.A. from Carleton College and her Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In addition to her duties at the Federal Reserve, Ms. Bradbury is an editorial board member for

Authority: Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 15A, Section 6 and 9 Background Review of Criminal Justice Programs in Public Higher Education To fulfill its mission to make programs of excellence accessible to the people of the Commonwealth, public higher education must dedicate itself to quality, offering rigorous programs that conform to current knowledge and standards and that are responsive to the needs of the Commonwealth. In accordance with its authority (15A Section 9 (b)(c)(f) and (s), the Board of Higher Education will undertake a systemwide review to determine the quality of programs in the field of criminal justice and the capacity of those programs to meet state workforce needs and standards. Since the mid-1980's, the Board of Higher Education and its predecessor Boards have conducted systemwide reviews of Nursing, Business, Engineering, Education, Chemistry, Physics, and Computer Science programs. The reviews in Education, Engineering and Nursing included independent institutions as well.

Regional and Sector Studies Knowledge Sector Powerhouse probes strengths, weaknesses of the Massachusetts economy Knowledge Sector Powerhouse is a new report examining key industries and jobs in Massachusetts at the beginning of the new millennium-and, it unfortunately appears, at the brink of a new recession. Powerhouse, authored by RESD faculty Robert Forrant, Philip Moss, and Chris Tilly, traces how the Massachusetts economy changed through the 1980s and 1990s. They conclude that despite the strong blue collar history of the Commonwealth, it has decisively shifted to specialize in "knowledge sector" jobs-biotechnology, software, consulting, brokerage-in which technical and professional workers put knowledge to work, and the main product is itself information of various kinds. Massachusetts wages have surged ahead of those in other parts of the country, moving the Bay State from wages equal to the national average in 1984 to wages far above the average as early as 1991. But the report also shows signs of weakness. Total employment growth in Massachusetts has lagged behind the nation. When looking within individual industries, Massachusetts workers earn more than those in other states because Massachusetts has more knowledge workers in the mix-but Massachusetts knowledge workers themselves generally do not enjoy better pay or benefits than their counterparts nationwide. While focusing on the continuing strengths of the Massachusetts economy, the authors also sound a note of warning about potential weaknesses.

Social Studies (Continued)
HOWEVER TOUGH social services have had it so far, no one expects newly elected governor Mitt Romney to act as a kind of white knight for the poor and disadvantaged in the upcoming fiscal 2004 budget debate. Signs have already surfaced that Romney is prepared to seek further spending cuts and agency consolidations, despite his campaign promise to balance the $23 billion state budget without raising taxes or slashing services. In recent weeks, Romney’s budget chief, Eric Kriss, has publicly proclaimed that the new administration will implement funding reductions across the board — including in health and human services. At a December 4 speech to the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce, Kriss acknowledged that the cuts could take a toll on those who depend upon government for such fundamentals as food, shelter, and medical care. "Obviously," Kriss told the crowd, "this will be difficult for many." Meanwhile, Charles Baker, the president of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and the head of Romney’s transition team on health matters, has trumpeted the overhaul of the 15 agencies that make up the Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS). Through the Pioneer Institute, a conservative Boston think tank, Baker released a December 2002 proposal called "Rationalizing Health and Human Services," in which he argues for a top-to-bottom restructuring of the EOHHS. He has proposed shrinking the number of EOHHS agencies from 15 to seven and organizing them by administrative function, rather than by clientele. So instead of a DMR and a DMH, the state would have, say, a Department of Case Management and a Department of Licensing. Since Baker drafted his plan before he knew that Romney would be the next governor, his streamlined vision for the EOHHS cannot be seen as
