Summary

When the Federal Trade Commission began an all-out drive in the summer of 1973 to alert the public to pitfalls in enrolling in some vocational and correspondence schools, several significant facts became clear: 10,000 different residential and home-study vocational schools serve about 3.3 million students who pay from $350 to $2000 for a program, knowledge of these schools, their operations, and their students is practically nil. The paper examines all available studies, research reports, and publications relevant to proprietary schools, presenting their findings in summary form. Acknowledging that reliable information has only become available within the last three years, the report concludes that Federal interest in proprietary education has increased, funds are available for research, and that it is time to reexamine assumptions regarding vocational education's "stepchild," proprietary education.
