JULY PART SEVEN Jr College Role To Be Stepped Up EDITOR'S in liis article No 7 in a on he report of the on Education Beyond the High School the role of the junior college is By STUART LONG Austin colleges like Cooke County ior College have a vital role in the proposals for ing higher education in Texas far better than it is now The Governor's Committee on Education Beyond the High School envisions that where there were students in the 32 junior col- leges this spring there will be in 10 years half of them beginning college work and the other half taking vocational work to learn skilled trades Junior colleges are primarily local colleges ported by the and the students with state aid averaging per student The committee proposes a vast expansion in this program and to encourage local taxpayers to der the added taxes it will take it proposed that the state take full advantage of the a year in federal aid which is available by putting up in extra state aid to be matched by local funds and then by federal funds to vide a boost in vocational and technical classes in the junior colleges The State Board of Education agreed with this recommendation in ad- vance and has already asked the Legislature to put up its to get this program going The committee further proposed that the present 32 colleges he matched in other areas It made no specific suggestions but junior college experts say movements are already under way to set up new ones in Galveston Dallas Tarrant Pampa and Gonzales Counties They can see the need in the future for junior colleges in the Augustine and Orange County and in one or two South Texas and West For a related story see on Page 8 Section 2 as areas where a group of counties could join gether to create a teix base large enough to support The committee's reasoning is simple If junior college work can be improved to full college level it's far cheaper on parents and the state to start them in college at home The committee estimated that if students were in junior colleges in their home towns they could get their first two college years training at a savings of to parents ami the Putting the proposed expansion of academic work alone into dollars the committee had these com- In the school year just closed the state put into junior colleges Local ers put in Students and parents put in in tuition By 1972 with both increased enrollments and in- quality the junior college costs should be to the state to local erty taxpayers and in tuition When vocational courses are added local costs would be nearly The committee suggested thai junior college tuition be kept lower than that of the state colleges and universities to create the tive to go there This would leave the 22 state col- leges freer to concentrate on junior and senior years and graduate work Big jobs would be given to these community col- leges They would be told to tackle the problem of basic education for the adults in Texas who are illiterates They would be given the chore of teaching young men and women to do the new jobs in industry in Texas They would provide the first half of college for about dents a year While the committee proposes to pay all tional costs of the work and to help by fourth of the cost of vocational training it proposes that local management and all tion costs be left to local elected junior college boards But they stress that junior colleges cannot survive unless they have enough tax bases and they urge creation of county-wide colleges or multi- county colleges or merger of junior colleges in areas where populations have declined The coordinating board for higher education would set standards to improve junior college instruction But primarily they would remain local community colleges Where's the money coming from for all this higher it 40 Pages In 3 Sections 15 Cents Racial Rioting Continuing In New York Police Halt Marchers In NY City NEW YORK broke up an intended anti- police parade in Harlem Saturday
