State needs community colleges, needs to fund them, says Washington system’s retiring chief - Katherine Long, Seattle Times

Washington’s community colleges are still struggling to recover from recession-era budget cuts, yet offer a solid path to many middle-skill jobs that pay good wages and are in high demand, says the outgoing director of the community-college system. Marty Brown, who became executive director of the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges in 2012, also says the college system needs to do a better job of publicizing its best programs. Brown announced his retirement this month. He’ll leave in June; the search is getting underway for a replacement.
