CITIZENS LEAGUE REPORT ON COMMUNITY COLLEGES FOR THE TWIN CITIES AREA.
Citizens League, Minneapolis, MN.
A COMMITTEE OF THE CITIZENS LEAGUE RECOMMENDS THAT THE MINNESOTA STATE LEGISLATURE ESTABLISH COMPREHENSIVE "COMMUNITY" COLLEGES TO REPLACE THE PRESENT PARALLEL AND UNCOORDINATED DEVELOPMENT OF VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL POST-HIGH SCHOOLS AND JUNIOR COLLEGES, THE FORMER OFFERING NO ACADEMIC COURSES AND ONLY THE LATTER PROVIDING TRAINING IN THE SEMIPROFESSIONAL, TECHNICAL, AND UNDERGRADUATE FIELDS. THIS COMPLETE SEPARATION OF INSTITUTIONS HAS SERIOUS DRAWBACKS, AMONG THEM LACK OF OPPORTUNITY FOR STUDENTS OF LOW ABILITY, DUPLICATION OF PHYSICAL FACILITIES IN THE SAME NEIGHBORHOOD, AND NO CHANCE FOR STUDENTS TO CHANGE CAREER GOALS. THE VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS ARE NOW UNDER THE LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND THE JUNIOR COLLEGES ARE UNDER THE STATE JUNIOR COLLEGE BOARD. THE COMMITTEE THEREFORE SUGGESTS THAT A NEW BOARD BE FORMED, RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COMPREHENSIVE INSTITUTIONS. THESE COULD THEN PROVIDE THE BROAD RANGE OF VOCATIONAL, TECHNICAL, AND ACADEMIC CURRICULA NECESSARY TO MEET THE NEEDS OF ALL HIGH-SCHOOL GRADUATES. (HH)
