English, Power and Decision Making in the Community College.
Cooney, James P.
English teachers must actively work to preserve the humanistic content of their courses and assure the acceptance of students' needs, not only to promote skill development, but also to foster clear thinking about the great ideas of the past and the problems of the present. The achievement of these goals implies an active role in the politics of the community college; the acceptance of positions of actual decisionmaking such as chairmanships, deanships and even presidencies. A program inaugurated at the Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh offers a Doctor of Arts degree in English specifically designed for teachers in two year colleges, and focusing on issues in teaching, research, and the perpetuation of the humanities.
