Issues in California Community Colleges.
Grosz, Karen Sue, Ed.
Forum, v6 Sum 1989
This issue of Forum, a journal designed to permit California community college faculty to share ideas, contains six articles focusing on issues related to the enactment of Assembly Bill 1725 (AB 1725). The first article, "Your Father's Oldsmobile: The Uses of Tradition in Core Programs," by John McFarland, analyzes the development of general education programs in U.S. higher education. "Management Wisdom through the Ages," by Jack Scott, discusses management techniques throughout history, focusing on six main tenets: selecting effective personnel, listening carefully, anticipating problems, correcting mistakes, maintaining integrity, and persevering. Next, Cy Gulassa argues, in "Collaborative Governance in the Foothill-DeAnza Community College District," that the increased faculty and student roles in district governance mandated by AB 1725 can be achieved through the use of policy development groups, and provides a detailed description of the Foothill-DeAnza budget policy group. "Meeting the Needs of the Disabled," by Karen S. Grosz, argues that the failure to meet the needs of disabled students results in a college culture that overlooks the moral and intellectual worth of an individual, thus contradicting the aim of education. Finally, "Theory into Practice: Knowledge and Skills Gained in Graduate School Applied to College Administration," by Ann Stephenson and Jan Moser, applies skills and concepts which the authors learned in graduate school to college administration. The journal concludes with a model of contract faculty hiring procedures prepared by the Academic Senate Educational Policies Committee. (JMC)
