Advancing an Equity Agenda at the Community College in an Age of Privatization, Performance Accountability, and Marketization
Harbour, Clifford P.; Jaquette, Ozan
Equity & Excellence in Education, v40 n3 p197-207 Jul 2007
In this article we introduce and explain a funding framework for advancing an equity agenda at the community college. The need for the framework is premised on (a) Dowd's observation that the traditional community college commitment to student access no longer suffices as an adequate strategy to achieve greater equity in society and (b) the recognition that community colleges are becoming more entrepreneurial as a result of challenges posed by privatization, state performance accountability systems, and marketization. A new approach to advancing equity is needed in this environment. We propose a funding framework that reflects lessons learned from a review of funding systems used in English further education systems and community college systems in Colorado and California.
