The Proprietary School in Oregon: 1971. A Council Report.
Ward, Dale E.
In Oregon, schools licensed by the Department of Education serve a broad base of occupational training needs and are governed by broadly stated and permissive legislation. It is the loose construction of statutes that gives the Department's Advisory Committee its purpose. The Committee and the Department jointly set standards of operation for the proprietary school. As the schools' involvement in training Oregon residents during the 70's, the strength of the state-school relationship will be tested. Therefore, it will be helpful to have a detailed description of the present relationship between proprietary schools and their respective licensing authorities. A recent Oregon Educational Coordinating Council report, "Proprietary Schools and Educational Plannings," October 1970, dramatized the problem further by demonstrating that nationally, "the 1960's could be considered a decade of indecision by local educational organizations which failed to develop new working relationships to utilize the facilities or programs of proprietary school." The following conclusions have been reached from the research and preparation of this report: (1) State licensing agencies for proprietary schools have established a close and significantly unique relationship with the proprietary school in Oregon which is nationally unprecedented; (2) The proprietary school can no longer be ignored in the assessment of educational resources in the state; (3) There is a need for the state to be equipped to objectively assess the performance of a school in at least teacher training and supervision and program evaluation.
