Occupational Graduate Employment Report: An Analysis of the Fifty Percent Employment Criterion for VA Approved Vocational Courses. 1975 Survey.
Veterans Administration, Washington, DC. Office of the Controller.
Public Law (P.L.) 93-508, enacted by the 93rd Congress, contains two sections which require a minimum employment standard of 50% for schools offering vocational courses to veteran trainees enrolled under the provisions of two chapters of the current (as of 1975) VA Educational Assistance Program. The VA Administration determined that in order for schools to comply with this requirement, they must submit acceptable evidence for each of the approved vocational courses to show that at least half of their graduates (students who completed all the academic requirements for the course, whether or not they received a diploma, degree, or certificate) in the most recent 2-year period are employed in the same field for which they trained or in a closely related field at a comparable level. This report discusses the procedures used in collecting and analyzing survey data to meet the 50% employment criterion, the conclusions, and the legislation. A major portion consists of tabular data collected from the school responses, presenting such information as the proportion of no response cases, completion rates, and ratio of respondents in closely related fields.
