As usual, although the fact that about half of all higher education students are attending community colleges surveys like this produce only half a picture, and CC students' POVs are being completely overlooked. Sigh.

Someone needs to start a longitudinal study of Community College students too. This one has just been around for a long time, but doesn't have to be the only one.

We often read the opinion that college professors are putting all these "liberal ideas" into students' heads. Seems to me that this class is already arriving with some fairly liberal ideas.

I would have liked to see the reasons for attending college ranked in order of importance, rather than each being given it's own consideration. Who is going to say "It's not important to learn new or interesting things," if asked? But if you were to ask, what is priority #1, #2, and so forth, I think the responses would look a little different.
