Education in the Privately Owned Vocational Schools in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Report No. 1967-2.
Enns, Abram; And Others
The purpose of the study was to assess the number of privately owned vocational schools, the occupations for which the schools train, and the extent of their enrollment and labor market placement. This study is the fourth dimension of a descriptive study encompassing formal vocational-technical education offerings in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. The other parts of the study have been concerned with the vocational-technical education which is provided in the public sector of education in high school, junior college, and adult education programs and with vocational training provided by business, industry, labor, and government. The private school study has attempted to distinguish between the total weekly educational offerings and that which is specifically vocational. Some insight is provided into the nature of facilities available, the time required for each type of training, their approximate cost, and the nature of job placement experiences. (CH)
