National Advisory Council on Education Professions Development, Washington, DC.
This report, prepared for the President's Advisory Council for Education Professions Development, describes the special characteristics of the community junior college, its students, and its staff. Major current efforts in preservice and in-service program planning and recommended programs designed to meet the various needs of staff are outlined. Chapters concern the growth and development of the community-junior college, community-junior college characteristics and curriculum, community-junior college students and staff, projections of staff needs, programs for professional development of community-junior college staff, and priorities for the seventies. Two major recommendations provide a framework for further suggestions in the areas of preservice and in-service programs. These recommendations suggest that priority be given to the development of creative and well designed preservice and in-service programs and that in these programs, priority should be given to staff development which helps serve the special needs of socioeconomically and educationally disadvantaged students. Appendixes include related material. (MJM)
