The Role of the Private Vocational Schools in the University of the State of New York.
Nyquist, Ewald B.
The goals of the New York State Department of Education are: (1) to enlarge educational opportunity for the people of the State, (2) to provide the best possible quality in education; and (3) to accomplish those tasks with efficiency, economy, and demonstrable effectiveness. To achieve a society in which each person can realize his potential requires competent leadership and wise planning. The concept of postsecondary education should be broadened to include post-high school opportunities for all people. It is expected that students will be able to attend the institutions, public or private, which offer programs suited to their particular interests and needs. An all-inclusive educational system, embracing all of education in the State, would provide for continuous learning in skills and knowledge. The number of students who can benefit from instruction in private vocational schools is expected to continue to increase. Some areas of concern in meeting this need are: veterans' education, degree granting privileges, proposed legislation, accreditation, student loans, and manpower training programs. Private vocational schools are expected to become more involved in a comprehensive system of occupational education, a subpattern within a total system. Regional planning is required for specific objectives. (Author/AG)
