FEASIBILITY OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES IN HAWAII.
KOSAKI, RICHARD H.
POPULATION GROWTH, ECONOMIC FACTORS, AND EDUCATIONAL NEEDS PROVIDE JUSTIFICATION FOR A COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEM AS THE MOST EFFECTIVE MEANS OF MEETING HAWAII'S NEEDS IN POSTSECONDARY EDUCATION. THE COORDINATED COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEM WILL ATTEMPT TO MEET NEEDS ON A STATEWIDE RATHER THAN ON A LOCAL BASIS. ALTHOUGH FINANCED FROM STATE SOURCES AND UNDER THE DIRECTION OF A STATE-LEVEL BOARD, THE COLLEGES WILL NOT ALL BE ALIKE, ESPECIALLY IN TERMS OF NUMBER AND VARIETY OF PROGRAMS. ADMINISTRATIVELY, THE SYSTEM SHOULD BE PLACED UNDER THE BOARD OF REGENTS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII. TWO ALTERNATIVES ARE GIVEN--SUPERVISION BY THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION OR BY A NEWLY CREATED BOARD FOR COMMUNITY COLLEGES. PUBLIC TECHNICAL SCHOOLS SHOULD BE CONVERTED INTO COMMUNITY COLLEGES. A COMPREHENSIVE CURRICULUM WILL OFFER TRANSFER, TECHNICAL-VOCATIONAL, CONTINUING, AND GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS. IDEALLY, THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE SHOULD BE TUITION-FREE. HOWEVER, IN VIEW OF THE STATE'S ECONOMY AND THE COSTS OF ESTABLISHING COMMUNITY COLLEGES, INITIAL TUITION WILL BE SET AT $130 A YEAR. DETAILED STATISTICAL INFORMATION IS PROVIDED. (HS)
