Putting Community Back in the Community College: The Case for a Localized and Problem-Based Curriculum
Hanson, Chad
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v32 n12 p999-1007 Dec 2008
In this article the move toward international education in the community college is questioned. Who benefits when two-year schools are globalized? An alternative to the current international approach is suggested. The case is made that community colleges serve the public interest when curricula are centered on solving problems unique to the communities that host and support them.
