Community Colleges and Proprietary Schools: Conflict or Convergence.
Clowes, Darrel A.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n91 p5-15 Fall 1995
Puts forward the thesis of convergence of community colleges and proprietary schools, which suggests that career and community colleges are becoming increasingly alike in providing a specialized form of education and training beyond secondary school. Compares aspects of the two institutions, and provides groundwork for informed discussion on the topic. (34 citations) (MAB)
