Supporting Our Community Colleges
I am a huge supporter of community colleges. I was an adjunct professor for several semesters at Miami Dade Community College and Broward Community College before moving to Georgia to teach full-time at the university level.
Simply put, community colleges offer excellent job training skills at an affordable price. They remain the best value for re-training, though their message gets lost in the noise of slick for-profit college commercials offering similar choices at drastically higher tuition cost.
Supporting Our Community Colleges, by Dr. Jill Biden
I am writing today with some exciting news and a great video that I want to share with all of you. I was delighted last spring when President Obama asked me to convene the first-ever White House Summit on Community Colleges to highlight the importance of community colleges to our students and our economy. I am pleased to announce today that this summit will take place on Tuesday, October 5th.
