THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND THE CHURCHES.
TILLERY, DALE; AND OTHERS
JOHN H. PORTERFIELD ADDRESSED THE CONFERENCE ON RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE COMMUNITY COLLEGE AND THE CHURCHES BY POINTING OUT THE PLACE OF EDUCATION IN SHAPING TODAY'S MORAL VALUES AND THE PARALLEL GOALS OF CHURCH AND SCHOOL IN DEVELOPING THE STUDENT AS A WHOLE PERSON FOR HIS ROLE IN A SOCIETY IN CONSTANT NEED OF RENEWAL. WILLIAM H. LOVELL COMMENTED ON THE SHARED CONCERN OF CHRUCH AND COLLEGE IN SUCH SOCIAL FUNCTIONS AS THE EDUCATION OF THE CULTURALLY DEPRIVED AND ADDED THAT THE CHURCHES COULD ALSO RAISE THE STANDARD OF INTELLECTUAL INQUIRY AND SCHOLARSHIP IN THEIR OWN SCHOOLS. DALE TILLERY'S STUDY DOCUMENT COVERED MANY ISSUES FACING THE CALIFORNIA JUNIOR COLLEGE--ITS LINKS WITH BOTH THE SECONDARY AND HIGHER EDUCATION SYSTEMS, THE DEBATE BETWEEN ADVOCATES OF VOCATIONAL AND ACADEMIC PROGRAMS, THE QUESTIONS OF WHO IS TO BE EDUCATED, WHAT AND HOW THEY SHOULD BE TAUGHT, WHO IS TO PAY FOR THE COLLEGE, HOW THE COST IS TO BE SHARED, AND WHO IS TO GOVERN, THE ROLE OF PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS, AND THE RELATIONSHIP WITH STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS. HE FELT THAT THE COLLEGE AS AN INSTITUTION SHOULD BE JUDGED BY WHAT IT IS ABLE TO DO WITH THE STUDENTS IT ACCEPTS RATHER THAN BY ITS ABILITY TO ATTRACT TALENTED ONES. THESE PAPERS WERE PRESENTED AT A CONFERENCE ON RELATIONSHIPS (PACIFIC GROVE, CALIFORNIA, FEBRUARY 17-18, 1966). (HH)
