State Legislation Relating to Community and Junior Colleges, 1973-75.
Martorana, S. V.; McGuire, W. Gary
In spring 1975, the National Council of State Directors of Community and Junior Colleges polled all state directors to request information on actions taken by the state legislatures from 1973-75 which bear meaningfully on community/junior college operations and programs. Information used to compile this report includes: relevant laws enacted during the 1973-75 biennium; relevant sections of the appropriations acts; state master plans, commisstion reports, or documents that provide guidelines for operation or policy direction; relevant court decisions; and relevant attorney general rulings. In addition, state directors were asked to identify what, in their judgments, were the most significant actions taken by the legislature, courts, and attorney general about community and junior colleges in the last five years, and what are the strongest and weakest features of the legal basis for community and junior colleges in their states. This report is based on the responses of 45 state directors, including five complete responses and 40 partial ones. In addition to summarizing information about each state, this document identifies national trends. Annotations of the state legislation, an index to the legislation, and a copy of the survey letter are appended. (NHM)
