      The Chronicle of Higher Education's
      Weekly Report on COMMUNITY COLLEGES
      _________________________________________________________________

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our August 4
      issue. The page numbers refer to that issue, and the Web
      addresses refer to the online versions of the articles.

      TOP STORIES:

      *  A MIXED BAG: Community-college officials desperately want
         Congress to pass a bill that would ease the financial strain
         on needy students, but not everyone wants to see it enacted:
         A30
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v46/i48/48a03002.htm

      *  REMEDIATION OR REJECTION: California State University takes an
         "or else" approach to reduce its enormous remedial course
         load, and works with high schools to help prepare students for
         college: A27
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v46/i48/48a02701.htm

      *  A LESSON IN NEPAL: Richard Brogdon, a former president of an
         American community college, has learned as well as taught this
         year during a Peace Corps stint in the Himalayan nation: B2
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v46/i48/48b00201.htm

      *  REPORT ON DISTANCE LEARNING: A commission that will make
         recommendations to Congress about online education announced
         that it was narrowing its focus: A38
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v46/i48/48a03801.htm

      *  TRUSTEES VS. PROFESSORS: Perhaps the two camps are so often at
         each other's throats because they have so much in common, says
         Richard Chait, a professor of higher education at the Harvard
         Graduate School of Education. He calls for conversation rather
         than confrontation: B4
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v46/i48/48b00401.htm

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  INSTRUCTIONAL DESIGNERS, who create online versions of

         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v46/i48/48a03701.htm

      *  "PERCENTAGE PLANS" for admissions to state universities have
         significant flaws and can keep minority students out of
         undergraduate and graduate programs, writes Mary Frances
         Berry, head of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and a
         University of Pennsylvania professor: A48
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v46/i48/48a04801.htm

      *  IN PICKING RICHARD B. CHENEY as his running mate, Gov. George
         W. Bush has led some to see Mr. Cheney's wife, Lynne V.
         Cheney, the former head of the National Endowment for the
         Humanities, as a future education secretary: A27
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v46/i48/48a02702.htm
