TECHNICAL EDUCATION IN THE JUNIOR COLLEGE, EDUCATION 261E SEMINAR-- A STUDY OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION IN THE NORTH ORANGE COUNTY JUNIOR COLLEGE DISTRICT.
ALLEN, DAVID; AND OTHERS
THIS REPORT OF A STUDY OF A 3-CAMPUS, DISTRICT-WIDE PROGRAM, WHERE EACH CAMPUS MEETS ITS LOCAL NEEDS BUT BENEFITS FROM ECONOMICAL CENTRAL PURCHASING AND SERVICING, MAKES SEVERAL RECOMMENDATIONS. ONE DUTY OF THE DISTRICT DIRECTOR MUST BE TO COORDINATE COURSES AMONG THE CAMPUSES, WITH ADULT EDUCATION, AND WITH INDUSTRY. THE NECESSARY ADVISORY COMMITTEES MUST BE CHOSEN ACCORDING TO TYPE, SIZE, AND LOCATION OF INDUSTRY. SPECIAL PERSONNEL SHOULD DO THE PROPOSALS FOR AND REPORTS ON FEDERAL AND OTHER GRANTS. THE DISTRICT DIRECTOR SHOULD PROMOTE AND DIRECT SUCH SPECIAL PROGRAMS AS FEDERAL TRAINING FOR THE DISADVANTAGED. THE COLLEGE MUST BE RESPONSIBLE FOR EFFECTIVE ARTICULATION WITH THE HIGH SCHOOLS AND ALSO FOR PROVIDING ENRICHMENT COURSES AND PLACEMENT SERVICE. A BALANCE MUST BE FOUND THAT WILL AVOID NOT ONLY DUPLICATE COURSES WITH COSTLY EQUIPMENT, BUT ALSO THE GROWTH OF SPECIALTY CAMPUSES. THE 4-QUARTER SYSTEM WILL HAVE DISTINCT ADVANTAGES FOR TECHNICAL PROGRAMS. THE TEACHING STAFF MUST BE RECRUITED FROM ALL POSSIBLE SOURCES, WELL PAID, AND CAREFULLY EVALUATED. TEACHER WORKLOADS MUST BE COMPLETELY RESTUDIED TO DETERMINE EQUITABLE HOURS AND SALARIES, AND UNAVOIDABLE OVERLOADS MUST BE COMPENSATED FOR. PROVISION MUST BE MADE FOR INSTRUCTORS TO KEEP UP TO DATE IN THEIR TRADE AND INDUSTRY. THESE FINDINGS MAY SERVE AS GUIDELINES FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF OTHER MULTI-CAMPUS TECHNICAL EDUCATION PROGRAMS.
