TOWARD EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL.
KNOELL, DOROTHY M.
THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES ASKED THAT THIS STUDY BE MADE BEFORE ESTABLISHING WHAT WOULD IN EFFECT BE A THIRD TYPE OF 2-YEAR COLLEGE IN THE NEW YORK STATE UNIVERSITY SYSTEM. THE PROPOSED PROGRAM WOULD INCLUDE THE DISADVANTAGED IN URBAN AREAS AND THE LOWEST QUARTER OF HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES, AMONG OTHERS. THE MAJOR PHASES OF THE INQUIRY INCLUDED AN ASSESSMENT OF THE MANPOWER SITUATION AND A REVIEW OF WHAT IS BEING DONE BY OTHER AGENCIES, INSTITUTIONS, AND SPECIAL GROUPS TO SOLVE THE DUAL PROBLEM OF PRODUCING TRAINED MANPOWER AND MEETING THE NEEDS OF YOUNG PEOPLE FOR EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY. ORIGINAL RESEARCH WAS UNDERTAKEN IN THE THREE AREAS--STUDENT-PARENT INTERVIEWS, COLLEGE ATTITUDES AND OPINIONS, AND FOLLOWUP STUDIES OF COLLEGE DROPOUTS. THE PLAN FOR EACH STUDY IS PRESENTED BRIEFLY, FOLLOWED BY A SUMMARY OF THE MAJOR FINDINGS. SIX BACKGROUND PAPERS ON VARIOUS ASPECTS OF EXTENDING OPPORTUNITY, PARTICULARLY WITH RESPECT TO URBAN DISADVANTAGED YOUTH, ARE SUMMARIZED. CONCLUSIONS, IMPLICATIONS, AND GUIDELINES FOR ESTABLISHING AND DEVELOPING STATE UNIVERSITY URBAN CENTERS END THE REPORT. (HS)
