high cost of college

I am not in favor of extending community colleges to four years. They serve a very specific purpose and a very specific population of students and should remain as structured. Making them four-year institutions would simply put pressure on them to raise faculty standards and therefore increase costs!

Community college

Not everyone needs or is suited for a 4 yr program. We need all levels of training and experience to form a successful society. A plumber is crucial to keeping our world working properly but do they need 4 year programs?
