INCREASING OPPORTUNITIES IN HIGHER EDUCATION FOR DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS.
MARTYN, KENNETH A.
THE DISADVANTAGED STUDENT IS DEFINED IN TERMS OF FAMILY INCOME AND THE LOCATION OF FAMILY RESIDENCE. THIS DEFINITION IS THE ONE GENERALLY USED AND ACCEPTED BY THE COLLEGES. ON-CAMPUS VISITS AND AN INVENTORY OF PROVISIONS FOR DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS FROM ALL SEGMENTS OF HIGHER EDUCATION IN CALIFORNIA, AS WELL AS A SEARCH OF RELATED LITERATURE, WERE UTILIZED IN COMPLETING THIS SURVEY. THE JUNIOR COLLEGES' PROGRAM FOR SPECIAL RECRUITING OF DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS IS NOT AS WELL DEVELOPED AS THOSE IN THE STATE COLLEGES OR THE UNIVERSITY. RELIANCE ON THE "OPEN-DOOR" ADMISSIONS POLICY AND THE CLOSE RELATIONSHIPS WITH THE NEARBY HIGH SCHOOLS MAY ACCOUNT FOR THIS. OFF-CAMPUS TUTORIAL PROGRAMS ARE ALSO NOT AS WELL DEVELOPED IN THE JUNIOR COLLEGES, NOR ARE COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT PROJECTS BY THE STUDENTS. HOWEVER, MOST OF THE DISADVANTAGED STUDENTS ATTENDING COLLEGE IN CALIFORNIA ARE ENROLLED IN THE JUNIOR COLLEGES. THE COUNSELING, REMEDIAL, AND INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS ARE PARTICULARLY SUITED TO AIDING SUCH STUDENTS, WHEN THEY HAVE ENROLLED. GREATER AWARENESS OF THE NEED FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE TO STUDENTS FROM DISADVANTAGED AREAS NEEDS TO BE DEVELOPED. ALSO, MORE EXTENSIVE CONTACT IS NEEDED WITH PARENTS OF SUCH STUDENTS WHILE THE STUDENTS ARE STILL IN JUNIOR HIGH AND HIGH SCHOOL. (HS)
