Abstract or Summary
  • The educational system in the Yemen Arab Republic (YAR) is in desperate need of reform to accommodate recent changes in the structure of the economy and society of the YAR. At present, there is only one university, the University of Sana'a, within the country. In this study, the organization of a system of local community colleges is considered. In response to the problem of how these systems should be structured, organizational alternatives developed within the American community college movement are considered to the degree that the American experience may be applied to the problem of educational reform in the YAR. Examples given particular consideration include the structure of community college organizations in the states of Connecticut, Florida, Oklahoma, Illinois, Pennsylvania, and New York. It is determined that the best model for application to the situation in the YAR would be a system in which authority is shared between the central government Ministry of Higher Education and the governors of each local governance, the level of authority immediately beneath the national level in the governing structure of the YAR. The implementation of such a community college model in each governance would be structured in terms of local needs and directly administered through a board of trustees. This progressive step would serve to introduce a new era in education in the YAR. More students would be encouraged to enroll in institutions of higher education since they could attend a postsecondary institution for an additional two years while remaining in their local communities. In addition, the organization of institutions of higher education at the local level would clearly be of benefit to local citizens and their communities. The implementation of a community college movement, and in particular special systems for tutoring and counseling students in a psychologically healthy atmosphere, will serve as a positive contribution to all generations of the population of the Yemen Arab Republic.
