Community colleges are a bargain

Despite averaging only $3,860 in tuition and fees, community college enrollment is falling (“More than a third of community college students have vanished,” The Seattle Times, Apr. 3).  That’s a pity because they offer a wide variety of courses.

Yet I wonder if the reason for declining enrolment is that too many students never learned how to study while in high school. No matter what courses they pursue, their teachers assume they know how to hit the books.
