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

      Here is news of interest to community colleges from our January
      12 issue. The Web addresses refer to the online versions of the
      articles.

      TOP STORIES:

      *  WATCHDOGS WITHOUT BITE? A Chronicle review indicates that
         regional accreditors rarely and inconsistently come down hard
         on the colleges they are supposed to evaluate.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i18/18a02701.htm

      *  THE NOMINEE: President-elect George W. Bush chose Roderick R.
         Paige, Houston's school superintendent, as secretary of
         education. A college lobbyist calls him "an unknown quantity"
         in higher education.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i18/18a02101.htm

      *  CAUGHT IN A CRUNCH: Oregon's 17 community colleges got a cash
         infusion as thousands of students languished on waiting lists
         because of a lack of money to hire new instructors.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i18/18a02302.htm

      *  RECRUITMENT STRATEGY: Seeking more online students, Franklin
         University is forging links with community colleges.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i18/18a03402.htm

      *  "FREE-SPEECH ZONES": As some two- and four-year colleges try a
         new tactic to regulate campus protests, some civil
         libertarians see a violation of rights.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i18/18a03701.htm

      *  REPORTING CAMPUS CRIME: The Clery Act of 1990 is confusing and
         unfocused. We need to rethink how campus crime statistics are
         gathered and conveyed, writes Terry Hartle, senior vice
         president for government and public affairs at the American
         Council on Education.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i18/18b01001.htm

      *  COMPROMISE AT M.L.A.: The association agreed to encourage
         departments at two-year and four-year institutions to have at
         least half of their credits taught by tenure-track professors.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i18/18a01202.htm
      _________________________________________________________________

      ALSO OF INTEREST TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES:

      *  OVERHAULING THE SYSTEM: Texas' new governor proposed
         replacing most state appropriations for public colleges with
         direct grants to students, and creating a scholarship program
         for community and technical colleges.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i18/18a02601.htm

      *  OUT OF INK: In his online-composition courses at Anne Arundel
         Community College, David McDowell grades papers electronically
         -- with a virtual "red pen," cut-and-pasted comments, clip
         art, and even audio remarks.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i18/18a03102.htm

      *  INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION: Sylvan Learning Systems announced
         that it had bought a stake in a Chilean higher-education
         company.
         --> SEE http://chronicle.com/weekly/v47/i18/18a03003.htm

      *  WHAT'S IT CALLED? A poll suggests that few people actually
         call distance education "distance education."
