Implementing the Open Door: Compensatory Education in Florida's Community Colleges. Phase I: Questionnaire Analyses.
Schafer, Michael I.; And Others
A study of current compensatory programs was conducted in 24 Florida public community colleges during 1969 to be used for their further investigation and improvement. This study brought into focus the planning objectives, implementation, and evaluation of existing programs. From the data examined, it was found that: (1) 11.6 per cent of the state's total community college student enrollment were identified as disadvantaged; (2) program planning processes and objectives varied among schools; (3) comparatively few counselors and instructors were involved exclusively with disadvantaged students; and (4) the individual colleges' evaluations of their programs measured only student academic progress. A follow-up study to differentiate between adequate and inadequate programs is now desired. (CA)
