Proprietary Education: Alternatives for Public Policy and Financial Support. Final Report.
Southern Illinois Univ., Carbondale. Dept. of Vocational Education Studies.
In phase 1 of this study Illinois proprietary institutions were surveyed to identify their vocational program offerings; a directory of their offerings was published. In phase 2 Illinois proprietary school administrators were interviewed, and the data was analyzed to determine resources available, the institution's readiness for cooperation and/or public support, and the institution's strategies for serving adult and minority populations. Among the thirty-seven phase 2 conclusions, it was reported that Illinois proprietary school owners display a professional approach as evidenced by membership in local, state, and national associations and efforts to obtain national accreditation. Also, the lecture or shop lecture/lecture demonstration is the most orevalent type of instructional methodology. In phase 3 a national survey was taken to determine state-based public/private cooperation and financial support to proprietary education, and a statewide assessment was made of attitudes toward public support of proprietary education. In phase 3, thirteen conclusions were formed concerning state-based policies for resident proprietary education. For example, it was documented that resident proprietary vocational education is a large enterprise, and boards authorized to administer state plans for vocational education have limited responsibility for governing, coordinating, or regulating resident proprietary vocational education. (The proprietary institutions directory, an annotated bibliography, and survey instruments are included.) (Author/CSS)
