Community Colleges: Miniuniversities Or Opportunity Centers?
Johnston, Alan; Avila, Don
Community/Junior College Research Quarterly, 1, 2, 109-116, Jan-Mar 77
A study of 750 students from four community colleges showed that high-risk students graduated only half as frequently in traditional community colleges (miniuniversities) as in non-punitive colleges (opportunity centers). However, there were no differences in subsequent academic performance of such students in senior institutions, suggesting that traditional institutions unnecessarily deter such students from higher education opportunities.
