- Kurzbeschreibung<p>Today, community colleges enroll 45 percent of all undergraduate students in the United States. In the years ahead, these institutions will play an even larger role in American higher education as they transform themselves into new community located, globally oriented colleges. However, the outcome of this transformation is yet to be determined. Community colleges could develop into hyper vocational institutions guided by government economic development policies and the short term needs of employers operating in a global economy. Or, they could retain their outdated traditional mission with commitments to open access and delivery of a broad and expanding curriculum. Unfortunately, neither future would prioritize the long-term needs and interests of adult learners and their communities. In John Dewey and the Future of Community College Education, Cliff Harbour argues that before community colleges can become new and better institutions, they must create a new democratically based normative vision. This vision must be pragmatic and realistic.<br>But it must also show how community colleges can and should become more seriously committed to the advancement of American democracy in large and small communities. In Part One of the book, Harbour reviews the evolution of community colleges and explains how they became primarily concerned with serving universities and employers and advancing government economic development policies. In Part Two he explains how John Dewey's conceptualization of education and democracy can serve as the foundation for development of a new democratically based normative vision. Harbour, a former community college instructor and dean, has produced a volume for community college faculty, staff, administrators, and students interested in taking a more active role in the discussion and work needed to develop the community college of the future.</p>
