Student Activism in Junior Colleges.
Gaddy, Dale; And Others
Junior College Research Review, v4 n9 May 1970
The first article in this review examines research on student rights, administrator and faculty attitudes, and administrative remedies. The next analyzes student unrest and protest activities in terms of cause and degree, extent of government involvement, and institutional characteristics. The third article considers new and revised legislation, investigating the topics of disturbing the peace, trespass, significance of previous conviction, and rights of non-students on campus. The necessity and desirability of prior planning and coordination between police and college officials, the application of joint tactics, and the authority of police on campus provide insights concerning their role in the succeeding article. The last two articles consider the background of black protest in general, and faculty reaction to black student demands in particular. From a historical perspective, much existing research regarding black youth is viewed as inadequate, with more to be done in the areas of home environmental influence, and white teachers' needs and limitations. The causes of faculty hesitancy to respond to threats and demands, and case studies in faculty reaction, focusing largely on the Los Angeles area, are considered. (JO)
