It is by far the best study that I know of on community colleges. It comes at a critical time in the history of these institutions. It is carefully reasoned, beautifully written, and sound in its conclusions."" Howard R. Bowen; Professor of Economics and Education, Claremont Graduate School ""...and excellent piece of work....Its quality is high and the book is significant. Its significance stems from the fact that it deals with an area of higher education not yet explored by other writings."" Earl F. Cheit; Dean, Schools of Business Administration; University of California, Berkeley ""...a great job of describing and clarifying the issues....The book should become 'required reading' for our field...a very fine piece of work that will be a valuable tool for educators, students, and policy-makers."" Roger Yarrington; Vice President, Research and Development, American Association of Community and Junior Colleges ""...a thorough job of compiling the pertinent data; of identifying key questions; and of focusing upon central, rather than tangential, issues....Leaders and policy-makers in community colleges and in governmental positions will undoubtedly find the work an invaluable resource."" Bill J. Priest; Chancellor Emeritus, Dallas County Community College District
