Community Colleges

Question: Why do community colleges matter?

Answer/Quote: “Learning more about the role of junior colleges in this state narrative of remediation would have been welcome, but that would likely have blurred the focus that is so clearly and tellingly placed…. Nonetheless, we community college professionals can take solace from this point: like remediation, community colleges will always be with us, if only one hopes, to remind universities that every student matters.” P. 319.
