Educational Attainment Skewed in California Community Colleges?
Levin, John S.; Beach, Josh M.; Kisker, Carrie B.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v33 n3-4 p256-269 Mar 2009
We address the emphasis of the California Community College system upon credentials in their effort to document student outcomes. Statewide curricular awards (associate degrees and certificates) were collected over a four-year period. Data were organized descriptively and analyzed in order to identify long term trends. These curricular trends are analyzed in relation to their institutional implications and the labor market. There is evidence of a trend toward increasing training for low-wage vocations in the California Community College curriculum, including in traditionally academic areas.
