Back to School, Monday, January 7, 12-1

Almost half of high school graduates do not enroll in college directly. Later in life, these students want a second chance to get an education to ensure their economic future and self-respect in a world with little room for the unskilled and uneducated. Community colleges provide those second chances, but UCLA professor and author Mike Rose argues that not enough of them do it well. Rose is the author of Back to School – Why Everyone Deserves a Chance at Education.
