La Repartition Geographique des Programmes Techniques: Document de reflexion, Commission de l'enseignement professionnel (Geographic Distribution of Technical Programs: Discussion Paper, Commission on Professional Instruction.)
Conseil des Colleges, Quebec (Quebec).
The geographic distribution of college-level technical programs is one of the major elements which has distinguished the development of the system of "colleges d'enseignement general et professionel" (CEGEP's) in Quebec. Spring 1992 efforts to identify inactive or scarcely viable programs afforded the Commission on Professional Education of the Council of Colleges the opportunity to reflect on the development of technical education and the more optimal geographic distribution of programs within the service areas of the CEGEP's. This working paper offers preliminary thoughts on the redistribution of technical programs and invites comments from other interested sectors of the provincial government. Part 1 provides a context for the discussion of the distribution of technical programs, and the educational objectives which inspired the investigation. Part 2 attempts to reconcile different ways of determining program locations; e.g., based on economics, educational supply and demand, and institutional characteristics. Part 3 appeals to different types of educational commitments, presenting calls for leadership, student-centered decision making, change and development, and system coherence. Extensive appendixes provide data on enrollment projections, regional program administration and authorization, college admissions, and student mobility. (AC)
