Education is the only equalizer. To build a truly democratic and egalitarian society, community colleges, with their open-door policies, embrace all segments of society to provide high-quality education. Community college students often don't have the luxury to be full-time students. They have to juggle jobs, family responsibilities, activism for reform, and studies simultaneously. They deserve all avenues of support and incentives to achieve their educational goals in a supportive environmment that, at the same time, upholds high academic standards.
