The Story Behind Proprietary Schools in the United States.
Honick, Craig A.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n91 p27-40 Fall 1995
Reviews the history of proprietary schools in the United States, arguing that convergence with community colleges is a possible but not a necessary direction. Indicates that proprietary schools developed to fill a vacuum in the training sector, but that they made inroads in the postsecondary sector using federal money. (21 citations) (MAB)
