Testimony on the Proposed Regulation of Proprietary Vocational Schools Before the Federal Trade Commission: National Advisory Council on Vocational Education.
National Advisory Council on Vocational Education, Washington, DC.
The National Advisory Council on Vocational Education endorses the principle of Federal regulation of proprietary vocational institutions at this time. It supports the general thrust of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) proposed rule covering advertising claims, disclosures to individuals, a contractual cooling-off period, and cancellations and refunds but proposes amendments which would selectively revise the advertising provisions; strengthen the individual disclosure provisions to further aid the students; and make the provisions relating to the cooling-off period, calcellations, and refunds more equitable to the schools. (A five-page addendum presents a detailed critique of selected sections of the proposed FTC rule.) (AG)
