A couple weeks ago we did a post titled “Community Colleges Rule!”
Obama spoke at the first-ever White House Summit on Community Colleges, a rare moment in the national spotlight for an oft-neglected sector of higher education. The president said he is counting on the nation’s two-year colleges to generate 5 million additional graduates in 10 years toward a national goal of regaining the world lead in college completion.
Coincidence? Oh, we don’t think so.
