The Role, Responsibility, and Function of the Community Colleges in Occupational Education.
Millard, Richard M.
This speech emphasizes the thesis that the major function of education should be to prepare students for a vocation. Some implications for community colleges are: (1) the need for comprehensiveness, including communication and cooperation with high schools and 4-year colleges; (2) the need for statewide planning, clear identification of institutional goals, and complementary planning within the colleges to eliminate the qualitative differences in terminal and transfer programs; (3) the need for a diverse faculty with complementary and mutually respected vocations; (4) the importance of cooperation between community colleges and the community in planning programs that meet local manpower needs and providing work-study opportunities in the community; and (5) the involvement of the total college in guidance. Also examined are the limits of comprehensiveness and the elimination of time-defined educational concepts. (RN)
