A Survey of Junior College Work Experience Education Programs, 1962-63.
Barlow, Melvin L.
Work experience programs in 18 California junior colleges were studied. Data for the 1962-1963 school year were gathered through personal interviews with representatives of the colleges. Information on the status of approved programs, superior practices, principal difficulties encountered, and suggestions for organizing and conducting work experience programs is given. Program status is summarized in 21 tables and 14 figures which include subject fields offered, program expansion plans, length of programs, and the cost per student. Some elements of superior programs included: (1) The total work experience program involved activities challenging to the student and directly related to the goals of the program, (2) Criteria were established for student selection, and (3) An objective evaluation system for the program was maintained. Some of the suggestions for organizing and conducting a program covered related instruction, school credit, advisory committees, and school personnel orientation. (SL)
