EDUCATION BEYOND THE HIGH SCHOOL, A PROJECT FOR OREGON.
HOWARD, JOHN; AND OTHERS
OREGON'S POST-HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION PROGRAM IS ANALYZED, AND A MASTER PLAN IS PROPOSED BY A COMMITTEE REPRESENTING PUBLIC AND PRIVATE COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES OF OREGON. BASES FOR THE STUDY INCLUDE DISCUSSIONS WITH REPRESENTATIVES OF EDUCATION, BUSINESS, LABOR, AND GOVERNMENT, AND STAFF REPORTS FROM A VARIETY OF AGENCIES, INDIVIDUALS, AND INSTITUTIONS. OBJECTIVES INCLUDE (1) POST-HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES, (2) EDUCATION IN THE ARTS AND SCIENCES, (3) OCCUPATIONAL PREPARATION, (4) RESEARCH AND ITS APPLICATION, (5) CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAMS, AND (6) GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING SERVICES. POPULATION CHARACTERISTICS FOR THE STATE ARE PROJECTED TO 1985, AND POST-HIGH SCHOOL ENROLLMENT TRENDS TO 1975. RECOMMENDATIONS ARE MADE CONCERNING ADMISSIONS PRACTICES, TUITION AND FEES, AND STUDENT FINANCIAL AID PROGRAMS. SPECIFIC ASPECTS OF GRADUATE EDUCATION, THE STATE SYSTEM OF HIGHER EDUCATION, PRIVATE OR INDEPENDENT COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, COMMUNITY COLLEGES, PROPRIETARY SCHOOLS, AND CONTINUING EDUCATION ARE REVIEWED. FACULTY, FACILITIES, STATE FISCAL BASIS FOR SUPPORT OF EDUCATION, AND ASPECTS OF STATE-LEVEL COORDINATION FOR THE VARIOUS TYPES OF INSTITUTIONS ARE DISCUSSED. A SUMMARY RATIONALE STRESSES THE NEED FOR VARIETY IN EDUCATIONAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES AND PROVIDES THE BASIS FOR RECOMMENDATIONS RELATED TO ALL AREAS OF POST-HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION. (JK)
