Cohen, Alan J.; And Others
A study of cooperative education in the United States was made during the period of July 1975 through November 1977 to determine: (1) the degree to which it is a viable educational and/or financial aid mechanism for higher education institutions to adopt; and (2) the effectiveness of the federal role in supporting it. In this volume are contained two segments of the final report: (1) an introduction and overview of cooperative education, discussing the scope of the study and the nature of cooperative education and containing an overview of its status; and (2) an analysis of the costs and benefits: rate of return and graduate analysis, student costs and benefits, institutional costs and benefits, student employer costs and benefits, and a summary analysis. Some statistical data are included. (MSE)
