Modernizing State Policies: Community Colleges and Lifelong Education.
Gilder, Jamison, Ed.
In 1980 four state assemblies were convened by the American Association of Community and Junior Colleges (AACJC) to evaluate state education policies and to recommend changes that would enhance opportunities for lifelong learning. This monograph presents the final reports and accompanying background papers of these assemblies. After Edmund Gleazer's introduction, Jamison Gilder reviews the mandate of the assemblies and summarizes their recommendations for policy changes in the areas of college mission, equal opportunity, funding formulas, local district autonomy, staff development, cooperative efforts, resource sharing, and state regulations. Final reports for North Carolina, Florida, New York, and California are then presented, along with five background papers: (1) "Issues and Problems in Lifelong Education in North Carolina," by Grover Andrews; (2) "Recommendations of the 1979 AACJC Assembly on Lifelong Education: Implications for North Carolina," by H. James Owen, Jr.; (3) "Implications for Florida," by Benjamin R. Wygal; (4) "The Financial Implications in Policy Development for Lifelong Education in Florida," by Lee Pryor Young; and (5) "Setting Goals for the Future of Lifelong Learning in New York State," a background paper for New York's regional forums. Each report contains recommendations for various state agencies and offices, individual colleges, and the public. (JP)
