Dupree, Robert Lee
The purpose of this study was to make a cost benefit analysis of technical education in Oklahoma. Questionnaires were used to collect cost and earnings data from 200 graduates of eight post secondary schools and data were also collected from school records. Findings included: (1) Average net income foregone was $3,849, (2) Average total educational cost to the student was $4,768, (3) Average net productivity foregone per student was $4,186, (4) Average institutional cost per student was $1,637, and (5) An estimated return of 35 percent was calculated for the student and 25 percent for society. These are relative to 2 years of post secondary technical education. This M.S. thesis was submitted to Oklahoma State University. (EM)
