Hodes, Lance; Morsch, William
Presented is an executive summary of a study to collect information needed by policymakers and educators about the status of science education in two-year colleges. Data were collected from college administrators, faculty, and students by means of questionnaires. A sample of colleges was selected from a directory of all public and nonproprietary private two-year colleges. One hundred and eighty-three institutions agreed to participate. Faculty and student samples were selected randomly from lists of course sections in each field. Findings and recommendations are summarized in the final chapter which presents an overview of the characteristics of two-year colleges and information obtained from various types of institutions. Other findings related to institutions, faculty, and students are listed by the appropriate category. (Author)
