The College Board and the Twentieth Century.
Marland, Sidney P., Jr.
The profile of American education in the twentieth century, especially at the secondary and postsecondary undergraduate levels, is mirrored in the chronology of College Board policies and programs over its 75-year history. After a review of the first 75 years, speculation is made on the next 25 years and the shapes that may be taken by American schools and colleges, and by the College Board itself. Tables are included and cover: (1) percent of high school graduates to first-year college entrants; (2) U.S. population by age group; (3) AP examinations; (4) CLEP examinations; (5) SAT volume; (6) federal funds for higher education; (7) tuition costs per year; (8) CSS volume: parents' confidential statements; (9) increase in black enrollment; and (10) college board membership: institutions and associations.
