Summary
Community colleges are the fastest growing segment of American higher education. With low tuition and flexible scheduling, community colleges provide an array of classes and job training to 12 million students nationwide. But today community colleges are facing greater challenges than ever: more students with more needs, chronic underfunding, and an open-door admission policy that too often becomes a revolving door. John Merrow explores the contradictions of these colorful institutions
