A Researcher's Perspective.
Bailey, Thomas R.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n122 p93-100 Sum 2003
Argues that the diversity of community colleges justifies a more subtle system of classification than the traditional Carnegie system, but the large number of missions taken on by community colleges complicates this goal. Makes a distinction between a characteristics-based system and an output-based system. Uses distinction to discuss schemes proposed in this volume. (Contains four references.) (NB)
