A Profile of New Faculty in California Community Colleges.
Phair, Tom S.
This first phase of a 5-year study of staffing trends in California junior colleges surveys 78 public junior colleges and examines 1310 new, full-time faculty members hired in fall 1967. The data will be compared with those collected during the following four years. Experience categories were (1) none, (2) secondary teaching, (3) elementary teaching, (4) 4-year institution, (5) junior college, (6) secondary practice teaching, (7) elementary practice teaching, (8) junior college practice teaching, (9) research assistant, (10) teaching assistant, (11) industrial or commercial experience. Degrees were noted by (1) less than M.A., (2) M.A. awarded in 1966-67, (3) M.A. awarded before then, (4) doctorate. New teachers were further identified by subject area--art, agriculture, commerce, criminology, drama, English, engineering, homemaking, journalism, language, library, mathematics, music, nursing, philosophy, physical education, psychology, science, social science, or vocational and technical. It was also noted if they were graduates of California University or other institutions. Charts show the findings for years 1967-68 and 1968-69. The study is expected to answer: (1) Is an M.A. sufficient? If so, when and where obtained? (2) Are pedagogical courses necessary? How many and what kind? (3) Is supervised teaching, practice teaching, or teaching assistance helpful? (4) Should the University of California develop special teacher training programs for the junior college? (HH)
