Community Colleges represent the fastest growing segment of American higher education; their open admissions, low tuition and flexible scheduling draw students from all walks of life. They are the gateway to the American dream for millions. Vital yet flawed. Huge but virtually invisible. Government generally spends five times as much on prison inmates as it does on community colleges. Resolving these issues is essential for the American future.

Comments about PBS Discounted Dreams: High Hopes and Harsh Realities at America's Community Colleges DVD:

This is a MUST SEE for every Community College Administrator. Our enrollments are up, but our retention and completion rates are not. This is a very realistic look at some of the challenges facing Community Colleges, but I found it very positive in terms of what we are doing right and how we can improve our student retention and completion rates!

A "Must-see" for Urban Faculty

By Terry B., Vice President, Pathway Progs

from Cuyahoga Community College; Cleveland, O

Comments about PBS Discounted Dreams: High Hopes and Harsh Realities at America's Community Colleges DVD:

We have used "Discounted Dreams" effectively in professional development for our faculty. The video provides much-needed insight into the multiple issues that community college students bring with them as they venture into our classromms. All that we have shared it with have raved about the heightened awareness that evolves from this inside look into the lives of the first generation students that form the bulk of our enrollment.
