Community Colleges: Trainers or Retrainers of Workers.
Lerman, Robert I.; Riegg, Stephanie K.; Salzman, Harold
Community College Journal, v71 n6 p41-4 Jun-Jul 2001
Argues that, despite national data showing a limited role for associate-degree-only graduates in information technology (IT) occupations, the high levels of enrollment, low graduation rates, and large numbers of older students suggest that community colleges are functioning as retraining institutions rather than primary training institutions. Predicts that community colleges could become the leading training/retraining suppliers of the future IT workforce. (NB)
