"I just finished my dissertation."
“What was the topic?”
“It was about the prediction of community college retention rates.”
“What interests you most about community college?”
“Well, a lot of things. But I really think that the community college system is critical to the functioning of our democracy. A democracy depends on the education of its citizenry. And we just don’t have the infrastructure to send everyone to a four year school. So if America’s democracy is going to succeed, it’s going to depend in large part on the health of our community colleges.”
