Joanne Jacobs’ New Blog: Community College Spotlight

The always enlightening Joanne Jacobs has started a new blog, Community College Spotlight. Here’s a little info that she passed on to me earlier today:

Nearly half of college-goers go to a community college. And when people talk about educating our way to prosperity, that will happen at community colleges — or not at all….Community College Spotlight will take a closer look at the colleges that “educate the top 100 percent of Americans.”  The blog is part of The Hechinger Report, a nonprofit source of national education news and analysis published by the Hechinger Institute on Education and the Media, Teacher’s College at Columbia University.

I’ve already subscribed, and I hope you will too – Jacobs’ original blog is a font of useful education information, and I have no doubt that Community College Spotlight will be as well.

  1. I especially like this attitude: “educate the top 100 percent of Americans.”
    Been thinking about elitism and more specifically the different ways some people in the US present elitism as a core value.
    Never taught at a community college (closest thing was a state college). But it’s clearly where enthusiastic teachers are needed and found.
