Implications of the Role of the Junior College Teacher for Programs of Pre-Service and In-Service Education.
Pass, George Byron
This study investigated the role of junior college teachers and sought implications for programs of preservice and inservice education. Data came from a literature review and from seven academic deans and 91 teachers in seven Alabama public junior colleges. Pertinent information was obtained on the democratic nature of junior colleges; curricula in general, collegiate, terminal, and adult or continuing education; community services; student placement services; teaching in junior colleges; interinstitutional relations; professional affiliations; major subject area background; and knowledge of junior colleges. These were among the conclusions reached: (1) since faculty are involved in planning and implementing junior college programs, preservice and inservice education should be geared to prepare them for this vital function; (2) preservice and inservice education should stress the nature of a junior college and the ramifications of the open-door admission policy; (4) consultants, conferences, workshops, interschool visitations, institutional research activities, and possibly community involvement, should be used. Four recommendations for further study were advanced. (author/ly)
