Supporting Educational Objectives; Developmental Education: Enhancing Literacy and Basic Skills; Liberal Arts and Transfer


developmental education has become a significant curricular function at community colleges. Assuming that the demand for developmental education is not likely to decline, consider the following questions combining your readings from the book and the additional readings from last week:

  • First, can and should community colleges continue to expand their available resources to meet this demand, even to the point of having to reduce enrollment in selected other curricula functions? Explain your answer.
  • Second, if community colleges are not able to meet the demand for Developmental Education, how else can this problem be resolved? Explain your answer.
  • List the three options available to community colleges to reconcile the conflict between maintaining standards and offering open access.

Please base your answers by referencing information such as the following (these are suggested as possible rationales for your answers, they are not mandatory and not an exhaustive list:

What are several reasons why vocational/technical programs did not flourish before the 1960’s.

Is there evidence of student satisfaction with vocational/technical education that students receive at community colleges?

Is it appropriate, even desirable, for publicly supported community colleges to have 40 to 50 percent of their enrollment in vocational/technical education?

What shows evidence of the benefits to the individual for community college vocational/technical education?

What is the relationship between the supply of academically capable students seeking entry into college and its effect on community college admissions?

What percent of first-time community college students were found to enroll in at least one developmental course and what percent of the colleges offer developmental courses?

What is meant by the term, functional literacy and what are the standards for it?
