education for a better future

a high school education is not enough in today’s global economy—this much we know. By the end of this decade, more than 60 percent of all jobs will require some kind of education beyond high school.

the problem is that today’s college system is not setting students up to succeed. Nontraditional is the new traditional at America’s community colleges—most students work while attending classes, have dependents of their own, enroll in college part time, and are financially independent. 60 percent of college students are not college ready, testing into remedial level courses, delaying their ability to enter a program of study and complete a degree or credential. Only about half of all Americans earn some form of degree after high school. That figure drops to 25 percent for low-income students. Also keep in mind

millions of young adults have the ability and desire to go to college, but not the money, time, or support they need to get there or get to the finish line. What we want is for students who enter a community college to complete a degree or credential. In order to achieve that goal we focus on reducing the necessity for remedial courses and helping students complete their program of study faster.

i hope it will get better in the future.
