In the article Challenges and Opportunities for Improving Community College Student Success, Goldrick-Rab (2010) states “The massive expansion of the community college over the last century substantially increased participation in American higher education, particularly among individuals with limited opportunities for education beyond high school because of academic difficulties, financial constraints, and other factors. But strides in increasing access has not met with much success in terms of matching students to credentials; in fact, efforts to broaden opportunities may have hindered efforts to increase completion rates” (p. 437).
What policies contributed to the expansion of the community college? What policies may have hindered efforts to increase completion rates? Do you believe reform is necessary to increase the completion rates among community college students? Why or why not? If so, what would this reform look like?
