Topic: Two-Year College Teachers

Ten-second review: In what way are two-year college teachers perceived differently from four-year college teachers? Teachers in community colleges are ‘marginalized” when compared to teachers in four-year colleges because two-year college teachers usually do not engage in scholarly activities, i.e., publishing.

Comment: Two-year college teachers are focused on teaching sometimes difficult students with problems in motivation for learning, not on publishing and research as in the four-year college in which undergraduates are often taught by graduate students. RayS.
