In this article, the writer defines 'Community Colleges', in the United States of America and in Canada, at times also known as 'Junior Colleges', as educational institutions that would provide post secondary education, or in other words, the continuing education that is pursued after attending either high school, or a secondary school. The writer discusses that one of the biggest advantages of a Community College is that it is in general geared towards the educational support of students from the local communities and for those students who cannot afford to pay for campus or off site housing during their four year college studies, it is possible for them to stay in the local communities even while attending college. The writer examines the system of the Community College from an educational and an economical point of view.
From the Paper:"Many Community Colleges, including those in North Carolina, have today been able to effectively establish selective admissions programs for their colleges, for certain specialized areas of education, like for example, nursing. It can be stated that if all Community Colleges were to adapt the same principle, whereby they would at the outset develop the programs that would be most in keeping with their missions and then later admit students up to the point that these missions would be accomplished, and then eventually close the doors to any more enrollments, then it would be an infinitely better prospect for the students seeking admission, especially for those students who are given admission, but for whom there is no appropriate funding. At the same time, they must also make sure that there are representatives from all segments of society, and this would mean that it would indeed be possible to preserve the open access system even today."
