Educating for International Understanding: A Role for Community Colleges.
Schultz, Raymond E.
Community colleges are in a strategic position to educate citizens to understand international developments, as they provide educational experiences to a large number of grass-roots Americans. In the past, community colleges have placed little emphasis on international understanding because of lack of commitment to international understanding as an educational goal, the conservative orientation of many communities, limitations of faculty backgrounds, lack of effective curriculum materials, and lack of flexibility in the curriculum. Community college administrators need to make a commitment to teaching international understanding, and to help faculty members overcome provincialism. Suggestions for more effective curriculum materials are given. (RS)
