Summary

In the north central region all states except South Dakota and Wisconsin have publicly supported community and junior colleges. These colleges are institutions which offer less than four years of post-high school education. Junior colleges generally offer only liberal arts courses while community colleges also provide vocational, technical, and college transfer courses. Over 1,000,000 students are enrolled in 730 of these colleges in the United States. Job training in community colleges provides for the needs of workers in three ways -- (1) entrance to labor, (2) upgrading advancement, and (3) retraining for new requirements. Education beyond the high school pays off in higher earnings during employment and workers with some college suffer little from unemployment. The curricula are varied and diverse to meet the needs of individual communities as evidenced by such colleges in California, Colorado, and North Dakota. Funds come from federal, state, local, or tuition sources. Nationally, annual operating costs averaged $700 per student in 1965-66. Communities considering a community college can assume that -- (1) it should have at least 400 students, (2) grades 9 to 12 should have a minimum enrollment of 2,000 students to assure a college enrollment of 400 in 3 years, (3) the district should be large enough to establish a broad tax base, and (4) commuting distance should not exceed 50 miles or housing becomes a problem. Other alternatives for vocational training are discussed in vt 001 353 - vt 001 355, vt 001 357 and vt 001 358. (em)
