Hi Donna, I agree that the current cost of college is staggering and has made it impossible for many qualified students to receive their degrees. I believe that one important solution is to change the way that we view community college and allow it to be seen as an asset for those who ultimately seek a 4 year degree. Community College is a much more affordable way to receive credit for most core classes that can ultimately be transferred to a full time University.
