THE PROGRAM AND SERVICES OF OUTSTANDING COMMUNITY COLLEGE SERVING A RURAL AREA.
GARCIA, WALTER M.
MODESTO JUNIOR COLLEGE IN CALIFORNIA WAS ORIGINALLY ESTABLISHED TO SERVE THE NEEDS OF RURAL YOUTH. THE CURRICULUM WAS DESIGNED TO EMPHASIZE THE TRANSFER PROGRAMS OF STUDENTS TO FOUR-YEAR COLLEGES. HOWEVER, FOLLOWING WORLD WAR II, THE COLLEGE EXPANDED CURRICULUM OFFERINGS IN THE TWO YEAR TERMINAL AND VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL AREAS OF EDUCATION, AND TODAY A THIRD PROGRAM GAINING IN IMPORTANCE IS ADULT EDUCATION, IN WHICH SECONDARY AND ELEMENTARY PROGRAMS LEADING TO DIPLOMAS ARE PROVIDED. THE AUTHOR CONCLUDES THAT THE FOLLOWING STATEMENTS CONCERNING THE OPERATION OF JUNIOR COLLEGES ARE TRUE--(1) A JUNIOR COLLEGE SHOULD BE GOVERNED AT THE LOCAL LEVEL, (2) IT SHOULD BE COMPREHENSIVE IN ITS COURSE OFFERINGS, (3) THE JUNIOR COLLEGE SHOULD BE TUITION FREE, (4) STUDENTS SHOULD BE ABLE TO COMMUTE, AND (5) JUNIOR COLLEGES SHOULD BE WILLING TO TAKE ALL HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES. THIS SPEECH WAS PRESENTED AT THE NATIONAL OUTLOOK CONFERENCE ON RURAL YOUTH, OCTOBER 23, 1967, WASHINGTON, D.C., SPONSORED JOINTLY BY THE U.S. DEPARTMENTS OF AGRICULTURE, HEALTH, EDUCATION, AND WELFARE, INTERIOR, AND LABOR, OEO, AND THE PRESIDENT'S COUNCIL ON YOUTH OPPORTUNITY.
