Community college should be a first choice, not a last resort

“Repeat after me: My child is not a failure if he or she starts out at a community college. And then I need you to stop saying, “Community college is like the 13th grade” — meaning a continuation of high school. This expression is derogatory and disparages students who attend a community college as a more affordable option than starting their college career at a four-year university. And saving money on tuition is more important than ever. Outstanding student loans for the first quarter of 2019 were $1.49 trillion, according to the latest Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Household Debt and Credit report.”
