THE CASE FOR INDEPENDENT JUNIOR COLLEGE DISTRICTS, A REPORT OF THE CALIFORNIA JUNIOR COLLEGE FACULTY ASSOCIATION.
DEWITT, GEORGE E.; HALL, LLOYD C.
MOST CALIFORNIA JUNIOR COLLEGES ARE ALREADY GOVERNED IN SEPARATE DISTRICTS. THE FEW JUNIOR COLLEGES, HOWEVER, WHICH DO REMAIN IN UNIFIED DISTRICTS ARE LARGE ONES, AND THE ABUSES AND HANDICAPS THEY SUSTAIN ARE MANIFOLD. FUNDS EARMARKED FOR JUNIOR COLLEGE PROGRAMS ARE BEING DIVERTED TO ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOLS. UNIFIED DISTRICT BOARD MEMBERS HAVE TO DIVIDE THEIR ATTENTION BETWEEN PROBLEMS OF HIGHER EDUCATION AND GRADES K-12. UNIFIED DISTRICT ADMINISTRATORS TEND TO IDENTIFY STRONGLY WITH THE SECONDARY LEVEL IN THEIR PERSONNEL PRACTICES AND CURRICULUM POLICIES. ALSO, THE JUNIOR COLLEGE FACULTY IN A UNIFIED DISTRICT IS AFFECTED BY THE "GRADES-THIRTEEN-AND-FOURTEEN" ORIENTATION OF THE ADMINISTRATORS, MANY OF WHOM HAVE NEVER TAUGHT A COLLEGE CLASS. SUCH ADMINISTRATORS ARE QUITE NATURALLY INCLINED TO "PROMOTE" TEACHERS FROM HIGH SCHOOLS IN THE DISTRICT WHEN NEW INSTRUCTORS ARE NEEDED. FOR THESE REASONS, JUNIOR COLLEGES SHOULD BE INDEPENDENT. THIS ARTICLE WAS PUBLISHED IN "AAUP BULLETIN," VOLUME 51, NUMBER 5, DECEMBER 1965. (AUTHOR/HS)
