Different Funding Systems, Same Underlying Problems - Ashley A. Smith, Inside Higher Ed

A new policy report from the Urban Institute examines how national policies will need to recognize the variation and differences across the community college sector in order to be successful. That variation in tuition, missions and student bodies plays an important role in the overall success at colleges. All of those factors are impacted by a lack of sufficient funding, according to the report. The report, "Community Colleges: Multiple Missions, Diverse Student Bodies and a Range of Policy Solutions," was co-authored by Sandy Baum, a senior fellow in the Income and Benefits Policy Center at the Urban Institute, and David Baime, senior vice president for government relations and policy analysis at the American Association of Community Colleges. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2016/08/19/dramatic-differences-how-states-fund-community-colleges
