FLORIDA'S PUBLIC JUNIOR COLLEGES.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee.
ORGANIZATION AND OPERATION OF FLORIDA'S SYSTEM OF JUNIOR COLLEGES ARE DESCRIBED. EIGHTY-TWO PERCENT OF THE STATE'S HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES LIVE WITHIN COMMUTING DISTANCE OF A COMMUNITY COLLEGE, AND INCREASING PERCENTAGES TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNITY FOR LOWER DIVISION, VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL, OR ADULT EDUCATION AT ONE OF THE 29 COLLEGES. FINANCING IS THROUGH A FOUNDATION PROGRAM BASED ON THE NUMBER OF INSTRUCTION UNITS, THE RANK AND EXPERIENCE OF INSTRUCTORS, AND THE ABILITY OF THE COUNTY TO SUPPORT THE PROGRAM THROUGH LOCAL TAXATION. FUTURE PLANS FOR YEAR-ROUND OPERATION MUST PROVIDE 45 WEEKS OF INSTRUCTION, BE COORDINATED WITH STATE UNIVERSITY CALENDARS, AND OFFER COURSE SEQUENCES ON A YEAR-ROUND BASIS. TRANSFERS FROM JUNIOR COLLEGES TO THE UNIVERSITIES SHOULD MEET THE SAME STANDARDS AS THE "NATIVE" STUDENTS. PROGRAMS OF ARTICULATION, ADVANCED PLACEMENT, AND ADULT EDUCATION ARE DETAILED. (WO)
