Control of Our Own Curriculum in the Community College.
Holladay, Sylvia A.
State departments of education, administrators, educational testing systems, and the media are demanding uniformity of instructional units and of performance objectives for community college English courses. Limited funds and the desire to promote a favorable public image are factors encouraging standardization of instruction. Presently, policy and curriculum decisions are being made by those outside the educational system. More effective decision making can stem from the teachers themselves, in response to students' educational needs and interests. In order to regain rightful control of the curriculum, instructors must become active in the public relations and political issues of community college decision making. (KS)
