ERIC Reports on the Junior College Survey: The Presidents' Questionnaire.
Scarry, John, Comp.
The preliminary report of a joint study of the teaching of English at the junior college level, sponsored by the Modern Language Association of America (MLA), the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), and the American Association of Junior Colleges (AAJC), is based on 127 responses to a questionnaire sent to junior college presidents. The presidents accorded mixed reactions to questions concerning: (1) staff shortage, (2) teacher preparation, (3) teaching techniques related to increased academic efficiency, (4) curriculum priorities, and (5) teacher salaries. A second part of the questionnaire yielded information concerning a hypothetical National Task Force which would aim to service junior colleges by sending teams of specialists to work on specific teaching problems. Presidential attitudes toward financial support of such a program are also clarified. (RL)
