The Community College and Democratic Ideals.
Brint, Steven; Karabel, Jerome
Community College Review, v17 n2 p9-19 Fall 1989
Acknowledges the contributions of community colleges to the expansion of access to higher education, yet concludes that two-year colleges, especially since vocational education gained curricular predominance, have accentuated existing patterns of social inequality. Advocates the revitalization of transfer programs and the fostering of public rather than corporate interests. (DMM)
