"Quo Vadis" Specialized Occupational Program Accreditation?
Hankin, Joseph N.
This article on accreditation includes a definition, historical background, and discussion of the various forms of accreditation with their resultant problems. Differences are brought out between regional or general, specialized, state, and federal accreditation. An important question is raised about how specialized and general accreditation can operate most effectively together. Other questions raised concern: program vs. institutional accreditation; proliferation; costs; autonomy and uniformity; evaluation process, standards, and criteria; board membership; and governmental participation. The American Association of Junior Colleges supports the national commission on accrediting policy, which emphasizes the central and important role of regional associations. (CA)
