State Reports on Two-Year Colleges: A Selected Bibliography of ERIC Documents.
Booth, Barbara, Comp.
This bibliography provides abstracts of 531 state reports selected from the ERIC document collection. Covering ERIC accessions from the period 1968 through June 1977, the abstracts reflect the expansion of state interests and activity in postsecondary planning and coordination. The period of rapid growth in the number of two-year colleges in the mid-60's is reflected by feasibility studies for state junior college systems and standards for facilities and operations. Programs for the disadvantaged, open access, and the management and evaluation of vocational programs are concerns also evident among the early documents. Transition to the current period of stationary enrollments and reduced resources, and the concurrent expansion of state regulatory powers, are reflected in renewed discussions of college role, state-local relationships, and studies of unit costs, alternative funding formulas, program duplication and other measures of cost effectiveness. Between the earliest and latest reports are basic statistical compilations, studies of transfer success, guidelines for program development, and institutional surveys of many types. The abstracts are arranged by state, with 46 of the 50 states represented. Because the abstracts are reproduced exactly as originally published, variable typography may effect the legibility of some entries. (Author)
