Importance of Two-Year Colleges
  • One area in which educational investments appear
    to have paid off is our community colleges.Alan
    Greenspan
  • "A consequence of our highly competitive, rapidly
    growing economy is that the average American will
    hold many different jobs in a lifetime.
    Accordingly, education is no longer the sole
    province of the young. Significant numbers of
    workers continue their education well beyond
    their twenties. Millions enroll in community
    colleges in later life, for example, to upgrade
    their skills or get new ones. It is a measure of
    the dynamism of the U.S. economy that community
    colleges are one of the fastest growing segments
    of our educational system."Alan Greenspan

DOES THAT DATA SCARE YOU LIKE IT DOES ME?

Have you altered a life? I used to think that
the medical profession was the most arrogant of
professions. Now I think it is us. Can you
imagine a doctor bragging that he only treats
well patients? Joe Martin, President, Real

Without Proper Preparation in High School, Is
This What we Are Setting Our Students up To Face?
27
So Where Do We Go From Here?

  • Possible Ideas
  • Push Student to Take Core/College
  • Prep Classes
  • (Arkansas and Texas
  • Currently Require This unless
  • Student/Parent Opt Out)
  • Offer and Encourage Students to
  • Take Advanced Placement Courses
  • Partner with Your Local Community
  • College to Offer Dual Credit
  • Opportunities (Running Start in
  • Washington state Saved 22.5 Million
  • in Future Tuition for Students and Parents in
    2002-2003 Through Dual Credit Programs)
  • Course Corrections Lumina Foundation, October
    2005

29
  • Possible Ideas Continued
  • Encourage Students to Take Four Years of Math
  • in High School
  • (76 of Students at Two-Year Colleges
  • Are Enrolled in Introductory College Math)
  • Design Programs That Allow Students to See
  • the Importance of PREPARING for LIFE
  • (Entering a Community College/Workforce
  • Training Program Requires The Same
  • Reading, Writing, Math Skills as any Other
  • First Year College Program)
  • Community College Times American Mathematical

When you do the common things in life in an

31
Do I Need to Prepare for Community College?
  • Analyzing and Supporting the High School to
    College Transition
  • Thursday, February 2, 2006

32
Collin County
  • Located just north of Dallas County
  • Among nations fastest growing cities
  • Current population of over 480,000
  • One of the most highly educated counties in the
    state
  • One of the wealthiest counties in the state

33
Collin College
  • Serves over 41,000 students annually
  • Fall credit enrollment of 19,300
  • Three campuses
  • 75-80 of students indicate that they plan to
    transfer to a university
  • Average age is 25.6 and declining

34
Hot Topic Academic Readiness
  • 25-30 of all high school students enroll at the
    community college in fall after graduation
  • 45-50 will enroll within 15 months of graduation
  • 42 of these students require developmental math

Why Is the CC Transition Important?
  • An estimated 47 of the undergraduate students in
    the U.S. public higher education and 44 of all
    U.S. undergraduates are enrolled in community and
    technical colleges
  • Source U.S. Department of Education, Digest of
    Education Statistics, 2001

38
More Importantly
  • 49 of all minority students in American
    undergraduate education are found at community
    colleges
  • Source McClenny, K. M. and Waiwaiole,
    E.N.,AACC, Community College Journal,, April/May,
    2005

39
Community Colleges Open Admissions Friend or
Foe?
  • No SAT or standardized testing requirements
  • No Rank in Class requirement
  • No High School GPA requirement
  • Access is the driving force

40
High School Student Mentality
  • Do high school students think they can always go
    to the community college?
  • Do they think that grades do not matter if they
    are going to the community college?
  • Do high school student value community colleges?
  • First choice or last resort

41
Community College Enrollment A Closer Look
  • Graduating class of 970 students
  • 240 juniors and seniors enrolled in dual credit
  • 30 enrolled at the community college upon
    graduation
  • Class rank ranges from 6th to 947th
  • 12 of the students are in the top quartile
  • 40 are in the top half
  • As many as 40 may not have indicated that they
    planned to attend college

42
Access Is No Longer Enough
  • Persistence is critical
  • Meaningful attainment is absolutely necessary
  • Many programs within CC have selective admissions
    criteria
  • Students must be prepared to transfer
  • Students must be academically ready for junior
    and senior level courses

43
Opportunity for Innovation
  • Supplemental summer instruction
  • Self paced refresher courses
  • Early college admissions
  • Parent education
  • Alternative delivery of instruction
  • Changes in pedagogy
  • Rethink developmental education

44
High School/College Partnerships
  • Single biggest predictor post-high school success
    is quality and intensity of high school
    curriculum
  • Cliff Adelman, Answers in the Tool Box, U.S.
    Department of Education
  • Community colleges cannot succeed if they wait
    until students enroll before addressing their
    preparation
  • McCabe, AACC, Community College Journal,
    April/May 2005

45
Closing the Gap Goal
  • Improve the rigor of the senior year in high
    school
  • Send a message to students that they cannot take
    the senior year off.
  • Align high school exit standards with college
    readiness standards
