Understanding Students and Counseling Two-year Colleges. Spring Workshops. Second Monograph.
Berger, Marc I.; And Others
These six papers concern general educational problems and problems specific to two year colleges. In the first, Dr. Marc Berger stated unequivocally that Education, as traditionally viewed, is mythology. Its potential for bringing about change in the social order is non-existent; the task is beyond its scope. Dr. William Birenbaum, in the second presentation, questioned a wide spectrum of personnel-student relationship problem areas. Hypocrisy on the part of college leadership has kept due process and integration of people, subject matter and programs off the American Campus. Deans of students, he concluded, by being part of this, are now obsolete. Next, Dr. Arnold Buckheimer emphasized the need for dialogue and confrontation if college personnel are to be what he thinks they must be, viz., change-agents who meet students' needs. Dorothy Knoell defined disadvantagement and specified program and curriculum developments which are aimed at reaching this group. In a related talk, Dr. Carolyn Sherif discussed her 10 year study of the behavior, attitudes, and goals of disadvantaged youths. Dr. Louis Lieberman, in the final paper, discussed the problems of socialization of the two-year college student and the ramifications should these be overlooked. (TL)
