Myers, Leland W.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v23 n3 p283-302 Apr-May 1999
Reviews the history of Pennsylvania's higher education system since 1755. States that the Community College Act of 1963 imposed a funding system that has proved both inadequate and difficult to change and has discouraged the formation of new colleges. Discusses the current state of community college sponsorship, enrollment, funding, and outcomes, and presents several studies that call for system changes. Contains 12 references. (EMH)
