Community colleges are the fastest growing segment of American higher education — but the system is straining. Above is the trailer for our documentary on this topic, Discounted Dreams, as well as several personal stories featured within the documentary.
Some say that community colleges are vital to America’s future – they offer a staggering array of classes and job training programs. But growing enrollment is straining the system, underfunding persists, and in spite of some remarkable success stories, they fail to graduate even half of those who come.
This documentary travels to California, Colorado, Illinois and New York to explore the paradoxes of these vital institutions.
