Education Beyond High School. The Regents Tentative Statewide Plan for the Development of Post-Secondary Education, 1972.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This document contains the 1972 4-year plan that the University of the State of New York Board of Regents has devised for postsecondary education in New York state. More people have been involved in the development of the 1972 plan than any preceding one. In addition to the educational community, the public at large had a voice through public hearings that were held throughout the state. The purpose of these hearings was to elicit the comments of all interested parties, to better meet the needs of society, both individually and collectively, in the area of education beyond high school. In addition, the plan underscores the necessity for optimal utilization of all post-secondary educational resources. It boldly endorses the concept that these resources include proprietary schools, industrial laboratories, and apprenticeship programs, as well as the traditional public and private higher education institutions. The first division of the document presents the academic plan for post-secondary education, the second offers a review and analysis of master plans by educational sector, and the third division discusses the role of the Regents in postsecondary educational planning.
