Why Access Matters: The Community College Student Body. AACC Policy Brief 2012-01PBL
Mullin, Christopher M.
American Association of Community Colleges (NJ1)
While enrollments continue to increase, there is the concern, among some, that a focus on completion has the potential to influence just who is allowed to take advantage of educational opportunities. In policy conversations, especially those concerned with policies related to access and choice, there is a silent movement to redirect educational opportunity to "deserving" students. This brief highlights some actions that can be taken to ensure that access is not deteriorated. (Contains 2 tables, 4 figures and 3 footnotes.)
