Future of the Community College: A Faculty Perspective

General Concerns
Educational Policies Committee

The purpose of this paper is to define the future of the California community colleges from a faculty perspective. The sense of urgency associated with the publishing of this perspective is the product of the din of voices calling for the radical restructuring of the community college. In the name of "accountability," faculty and administrators are confronted with the demand that they apply quantitative measures to what is essentially a qualitative enterprise: education, the actualizing of the potential of human beings.
