Trends in Postsecondary Education.
Bureau of Higher Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
The papers included in this collection deal with many of the important issues facing US higher education. Papers in Part I are principally concerned with student related issues. The first study examines the process of choosing a postsecondary education. The second considers financial barriers to higher education. State efforts to remove such barriers are the topic of the third. The fourth paper discusses aspects of the expansion of educational opportunity beyond high school. The fifth concentrates on trends in high school vocational education which seem most likely to have significant effects upon future demands for postsecondary education. Part II contains papers concerned with institutional problems and capabilities for expanding educational opportunity. An in-depth review of financing is followed by a study of the junior college role. The next 3 studies deal with the college faculty member: supply and demand, need for new types of faculty to deal with new types of students, and public vocational institution teachers. The sixth discusses the growth of public postsecondary vocational education; and the last studies the current status of proprietary schools. (JS)
