Summary

The importance of private trade, technical, and other specialized occupational schools in meeting the needs of an increasingly technological society is reviewed. The developments of career education emphasized by Office of Education activities are explained. Advantages that proprietary vocational schools have over public ones are described. New FTC regulations for private vocational and home study courses will strengthen their reputations by combatting misrepresentations. A viable alliance between these schools and the Federal government must be implemented. Accreditation is important in upgrading educational standards. Legislation which has importance for private vocational schools is reviewed. (MS)
