State Planning for the Disadvantaged. A Report of the National Dissemination Project for Community Colleges.
Carlson, Dennis; Das, Deb
Major elements in a general process model for state and local planning for minority and disadvantaged education are discussed. These elements are: (1) needs assessment and public discussion of issues, (2) state goals and objectives for disadvantaged education, (3) local community college goals, objectives, and commitments, (4) provision of strategic planning support to local colleges in program development, (5) evaluation of the planning process. To make planning as meaningful as possible, the following are suggested: (1) planning should always be tied to implementation; (2) the threat of change should be eliminated as much as possible; (3) planning should avoid being a "zero-sum game"; (4) planning should involve as many relevant agencies and groups as possible; (5) when possible, planning should make use of analogies between situations being dealt with and situations in other locations. Three appendixes provide: (A) A Survey of Educational Needs--Battelle Institute's Center for Improved Education; (B) A Proposed Method for Prioritizing Goals, Objectives, and Activities; and (C) State of Florida Guide for Local College Planning and Evaluation of Comprehensive Services to the Disadvantaged--Part I. Checklist for Planning Community College Services for the Disadvantaged; Part II. Projections for Programs for the Disadvantaged. (DB)
