Community College Success: Is It a Path to Opportunity? The Progress of Education Reform. Volume 9, Number 5
Vandal, Bruce
Education Commission of the States (NJ3)
As a growing percentage of future high school graduates come from communities that have been traditionally underserved by higher education, and more jobs will require some level of postsecondary education, community colleges will be an increasingly important asset for communities that are struggling to meet the demands of a rapidly changing, global economy. This issue of "Progress of Education Reform" looks at the latest research on student success in community colleges and offers insights on the strategies that show the most promise in promoting greater educational attainment for community college students. A list of ECS resources is included. (Contains 2 endnotes.)
