Concepts and Comments: Occupational Education and Community College Facilities.
Grede, John F.
Community college preparation of students for the job market shows an increasing acceptance of basic responsibility for post-secondary occupational education, as contrasted to the poorer placement opportunities of senior institutional graduates. Implications for facility requirements can be drawn from examining concepts, which require: (1) cooperative program planning and implementation, so that the community college catalyzes the community's vocational education capacity, (2) occupational education as a full partner in a comprehensive community college program, (3) a wide range of occupational clusters in community college occupational education, (4) a "lattice" structure for upward and sideward mobility according to the student's ability, (5) special training for the disadvantaged, handicapped, and unemployed, (6) provisions for continuing education, (7) flexible instructional modes to accomplish specified behavioral objectives, (8) work experience, (9) continual updating of vocational programs, and (10) guidance, counseling, and placement services. Working diagrams of line-staff organization for community and junior colleges are provided. (AG)
