A Sound Investment: The Community College Dividend. AACC Policy Brief 2011-01PBL
Mullin, Christopher M.
American Association of Community Colleges (NJ1)
There is a clear need for a more highly educated and skilled workforce in America. This brief discusses why the expansion and enhancement of the community college infrastructure is considered as an investment. Given the diverse beneficiaries of an educated population, direct support of community colleges should continue to be a partnership between federal, state, and local governments; students and their families; and, when appropriate, business and industry. In sum, strong public investments in community colleges are more than justified. (Contains 1 table, 2 figures and 4 notes.)
