Proprietary Education in Georgia, 1974-1975.
Georgia State Postsecondary Education Commission, Atlanta.
A study is reported which sought to describe proprietary education in Georgia as it existed in the fall of 1974 through the spring of 1975, based on a mailed questionnaire and other communication with State agency and school representatives responsible for proprietary education. Following an introduction, which emphasizes a need for relating proprietary education to the rest of postsecondary education, a second section discusses historical background, a definition of proprietary schools, and some positive aspects of proprietary education. Section 3 presents a national overview and the results of the Georgia survey including information on programs and enrollments, students, cost-to-students, job placements, and future earnings. A final section lists recommendations for proprietary schools in Georgia, for State agencies and institutions, for Georgia law, standards, and guidelines, and for the Georgia Postsecondary Education Commission. An appendix contains data tables, a list of proprietary schools in 1975, the survey instrument, legal definitions, and a description of survey methods. (JT)
