Ranking Community Colleges

Did you know “43 percent of college freshmen begin their education at two-year institutions”? Nonetheless, community colleges don’t get the respect they earn.

Via The Quick and the Ed, Kevin Carey points to his Washington Monthly essay on America’s Best Community Colleges. Mr. Carey discusses why 4-year colleges get all the attention, points to some reasons why community colleges should get a lot more respect, and argues that — like 4-year colleges — community colleges should be ranked. Mr. Carey gives us his own Top-30 list. “Great teaching can happen anywhere,” he concludes, “and if America is to succeed in the future, it needs to happen everywhere.”
