Assessing the Community College Role in School-to-Work Systems

D. D. Bragg, M. B. Griggs

Students in community colleges have acquired work-related learning experiences while pursuing postsecondary education. However, in most cases, such learning experiences are neither well-documented nor systematically monitored by the community colleges. They should be. The authors also note that regardless of the particular school-to-work model used, community colleges take on the lion's share of responsibility for school-to-work programs in comparison to employers. If a greater sharing of responsibility does not happen, community colleges are likely to develop school-to-work systems that require fewer resources, or they will abandon the concept altogether.
