Fogel, Anna – New England Journal of Higher Education, 2019
Community colleges offer an important pathway to the middle class.

Walizer, Lauren – Center for Postsecondary and Economic Success, 2017
To compete for decent-paying jobs, today's students--particularly those coming from low-income families--need more than a high school education.

Murphy, Patrick; Cook, Kevin; Johnson, Hans; Weston, Margaret – Public Policy Institute of California, 2014
