An Analysis of the Role of Lewis-Clark Normal School in Idaho Higher Education with Recommendations.
Schill, William J.; And Others
Because of regional differences affecting higher education in Iadho, the Center for Developmen t of Community College Education examined Lewis-Clark Normal School (LCNS) and possible new facilities and programs for its area vocational-technical adjunct. Findings included (1) the legislature disregarded a 1962 recommendation that LCNS become a junior college; (2) its vocational division was made an area vocational-technical school; (3) a state employment survey showed a need for technical personnel; (4) LCNS's 2-year but not 4-year, programs were accredited; (5) the dropout pattern showed LCNS already functioning primarily as a 2-year college; (6) some courses replicated those at the nearby University; (7) LCNS lacked student personnel services; (8) current plans would separate academic from vocational programs; (9) general and vocational programs had no interrelation; (10) LCNS buildings were under-used and vocational facilities inadequate; (11) architectural plans made no use of existing buildings and poor use of available land. Recommendations were that LCNS should (1) offer no baccalaureate programs; (2) have academic and vocational facilities on the same campus; (3) see that new facilities make best use of existing buildings and provide for joint use; (4) insure high quality in both academic and vocational curricula; (5) integrate academic and vocational curricula effectively; (6) provide in-service training for the faculty; (7) be part of a master plan for all levels of Idaho education.
