Your input on this topic was all very well said. Having the opportunity to get a head start on a college education is a great thing that students should have more access to and be encouraged to investigate.
Although community college is sometimes associated with lower income, when deciding on where to continue your education, if the cost is cheap, it doesn’t mean the school is bad.
I say, why pass up the opportunity to get the same level of education at community college just as you would at a four-year school, but at a fraction of the price? Another plus to both dual enrollment and enrollment at a community college is that it provides a sort of slow transition step for students — those who want to continue their education but aren’t ready for the drastic change of being at a large school, possibly far from home.
I’m glad to see this topic being written about, and I hope this information gets to those students who need it.
