STATE JUNIOR COLLEGES--HOW CAN THEY FUNCTION EFFECTIVELY. REPORT OF A SEMINAR ON STATE-ADMINISTERED COMMUNITY JUNIOR COLLEGES (UNIVERSITY OF KENTUCKY, LEXINGTON, OCTOBER 10-12, 1965).
JOHNSON, BYRON LAMAR
THE SEMINAR ADVANCED THE THESIS THAT STATE-CONTROLLED JUNIOR COLLEGES CAN BE COMPREHENSIVE COMMUNITY COLLEGES AND ACHIEVE THE AMERICAN IDEAL OF EDUCATING EVERY CITIZEN TO HIS HIGHEST POTENTIAL. A STATE SYSTEM OF CONTROL CAN BEST COORDINATE JUNIOR COLLEGE ACTIVITIES AND CURRICULUM, THUS (1) AVOIDING DUPLICATION OF COURSES OFFERED BY DIFFERENT SCHOOLS IN THE SAME AREA, (2) REDUCING INTERDISTRICT RIVALRY, (3) PROVIDING CERTAIN KINDS OF SPECIALIZED PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE, (4) AVOIDING UNREASONABLE DEMANDS OF LOCAL POLITICIANS AND PRESSURE GROUPS, AND (5) PROVIDING EQUITABLE FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO SCHOOLS THROUGHOUT THE STATE. SUCH A SYSTEM MUST NOT BECOME TOO INFLEXIBLE IN ADAPTING TO LOCAL NEEDS, OR TOO READY TO SUBMIT TO STATE POLITICAL PRESSURES IN THE PLACEMENT OF SCHOOLS OR THE APPOINTMENT OF STATE JUNIOR COLLEGE ADMINISTRATION.
