A Community College System for Israel.
Shively, Harold E.
The purpose of this report is to recommend an educational institutional model that might effectively provide a means of coordination, accommodation, and implementation of programs to meet post-secondary needs in Israel on a regional basis. Israel already has 2-year post-secondary institutions, but the colleges and universities do not accept their students with advanced standing. Urgently needed are adult, continuing, and compensatory education programs. From his evaluation, the author concludes that: (1) emphasis in curriculum should be in technical fields, which are vital to the nation's interests; (2) a need exists for the education of more qualified teachers; (3) of critical importance are accreditation and the need to provide advanced standing to academically qualified students when they are transferring to 4-year colleges and universities; and (4) these problems should be corrected as soon as possible. The author presents a basic organizational model for development of a community college system, as well as alternatives to that system. (CA)
