Community Colleges, the Underdogs of the Higher Education System, Are Not Doing Well

From an AP story by Jon Marcus of the Hechinger Report headlined “Community colleges are reeling”:

When Santos Enrique Camara arrived at Shoreline Community College in Washington state to study audio engineering, he quickly felt lost.

“It’s like a weird maze,” remembered Camara, who was 19 at the time and had finished high school with a 4.0 grade-point average. “You need help with your classes and financial aid? Well, here, take a number and run from office to office and see if you can figure it out.”
