Some Philosophical and Practical Concepts for Broadening the Base of Higher Education in Virginia.
Vaughan, George B.
This topical paper is a record of the events leading to the creation of a statewide system of publicly supported comprehensive community colleges for Virginia. Commission and legislative reports are reviewed, as are contributions made by influential state legislators, educational leaders, and outside consultants. The plan finally enacted provided for: (1) comprehensive institutions, and (2) a statewide master plan for the establishment of community colleges. This study is a historical record for Virginia, but it can also serve as a model for other states to document the development of their community college plans. (CA)
