Jeff Selingo and Michael Horn discuss the evolving landscape of community colleges, including changes in their admissions practices and the value of associate degrees. They delve into the challenges and opportunities faced by community colleges, especially in the context of declining enrollments and the rise of dual enrollment programs.
“I think what it boils down to is on a two-year campus, it’s not controversial to say that the big goal of the students here is to get jobs, like the faculty, the programs. People are really interested in helping people get jobs. They want to get them ready for the labor market and they all have that sense that this is important for our students,” says Michael Horn.
