An Approach to Curriculum Development: Interfacing Senior Centers and Community Colleges.
Sadowski, Bernard S.
Senior citizens between the ages 60-72 most want to attend a community college according to a series of interviews among 100 members 60 years and older, of Seattle, Washington-based senior centers. A semantic differential technique evaluated the concepts of community college, classroom and senior center. Members evaluated the concept "community college" as neutral, while the concepts of "senior center" and "classroom" were beneficial, although they indicated that they were likely to want to attend community college. Ninety-three percent of those who had prior college experience said they would attend. The overall results appear to support the maxim that education tends to beget more education. (Author/BH)
