Regulate vocational programs the same way as India’s world-class Technical Institutes

This issue was covered by the preceding issue. Vocational programs of proprietary schools should be treated the same as vocational programs of colleges and universities. Whatever regulation that is applied to non-profit institutions (which it should be said is virtually non-existent as to vocational programs) should be carried over, as appropriate, to for-profit proprietary schools, so that both types of schools compete on a level playing field. This was there is competition in the creation of courses and placement. With no significant regulation of proprietary schools, the nation's proprietary schools could start competing with the seven India Technical Institutes.

As NYS Attorney General, I would try to get the educational regulators to reduce their regulation of proprietary schools, to the extent permissible under existing legislation.
