Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n43 pA45-46 Jun 30, 2000
Reports on a trend at community colleges to recruit underachieving high school students in their "bridge" or "dual enrollment" programs. Also reports that 25 community colleges in 10 states have high schools on their campuses for high-risk teenagers.
