Private Vocational Schools and Their Students; Limited Objectives - Unlimited Opportunities.
Belitsky, A. Harvey
Results are presented of a study on ways of using private vocational schools for training disadvantaged persons. The potential social role of these schools is considered first, followed by advantages to students and employers because of the schools' flexible operation and organization, progress toward better evaluation of schools through voluntary accreditation, and the diversity of educational resources and opportunities. Other chapters deal with instructor qualifications and duties; characteristics, needs, and performance of the students; student responses to proposed financial aid programs at RCA institutes in New York City; and high school dropout performance in competition with other private vocational school students. Finally, as it illustrates the potential for equalizing educational opportunities by means of proprietary schools, this book offers recommendations for joint public and private training programs, with attention to such concerns as course upgrading and student grants. The document includes an index, questionnaires, types of courses offered in 544 schools, and two questionnaires. (LY)
