By S. Sicilia on February 14, 2007
Format: Hardcover
While commnity colleges have helped everyone go to college, many of our students flounder once they get in, and never graduate. This book looks at community college graduation rates for OCCUPATIONAL PROGRAMS (as opposed to transfer programs).

The focus of the book is a 3-year study in which the authors tracked some of best accredited private occupational colleges, and compare them to the community colleges in the same areas. The private schools had MUCH better graduation rates, especially for minority students. The difference was not explained by the students coming in, as the demographics and academic levels of incoming students were the same for the two groups of schools. The authors have identified several key differences in the ways that the two types of schools support their enrolled students. These translate into ideas for changes that community colleges should consider.

As a community college faculty member in an occupational field, I found a lot of food for thought. I've discussed some of the study results with my students, and they agree.

Community college supporters don't often look to the for-profit sector for tips on student success, but Rosenbaum makes a strong argument that they should. This book is essential for anyone wanting to think out of the box and look at retention issues from a different perspective.
