Placement and Follow-Up Programs in the Public Junior Colleges of Texas.
Ellerbrook, W. L.
Surveying literature relevant to the junior college and the public junior colleges in Texas (by questionnaire), the author found that, concerning placement and followup programs: (1) most work is being done on or for students who transfer to a 4-year college; (2) some work is being done on or for those who join the work force immediately after graduation; and (3) almost nothing is being done on or for students who drop out of junior college. He notes that, as the community college assumes the expanded role of producing vocationally and technically trained graduates and providing continuing or adult education, it must provide auxiliary services to these groups of students as well. For these students, there is a market shortage of placement and followup services, and the author recommends that the junior college re-evaluate not only its placement and followup programs, but also its total program to see if its objectives are appropriate and are being accomplished.
