History [of the] Women's Re-entry to Education Program, San Jose City College, 1973-1976.
Alexandra, Pamela
The Women's Reentry to Education Program (WREP) at San Jose City College is a one-year program designed for low-income, urban women who want to return to school. It is different from the educational experiences traditionally offered to disadvantaged women, who are expected to learn to type, become assembly workers, or enter other stereotyped occupations reserved for women and minority groups. WREP offers a general education that serves as a foundation for diverse career, educational, and/or personal goals. The first semester courses include English, Sociology, Health, Career Planning, and Study Skills. During the second semester, the students are required to take Speech and Biology in addition to one of several electives. This report describes the establishment of the program in 1973, the funding sources, the courses offered, the staff, the advisory board, the methods used to recruit and select students, and the orientation and registration procedures. It also reports on the tutors, counselors, transportation, and childcare facilities available to WREP students. Appendices include a list of objectives for the WREP program; program budgets; a student profile; student evaluations of counseling, instructors, and the program in general; and a table showing WREP student grade point averages.
