Pressestimmen

âEURoeIn Non-Traditional Students and Community Colleges, John Levin gives voice
to the students most predominantly served by America's community colleges. He
highlights the efforts of dedicated faculty and leaders of the colleges to serve
the best interests of these non-traditional students despite social policies
that often act in opposition. This book is well grounded in field-based research
and should be essential reading for those who care about justice and fairness
for those who are less privileged-the very students who attend community
colleges.âEUR?--George R. Boggs, President and CEO, American Association of
Community Colleges

âEUR?Most of the literature on higher education focuses on well-prepared students
attending selective four-year colleges and universities. The real battle for
educational opportunity and for social justice will be won or lost, however, in
the two-year public community colleges, and this splendid study is essential
reading for anyone who would understand the struggle faced by disadvantaged
students, most of whom depend on community colleges for further education.
Levin's work, based on sound conceptual theory and detailed interview findings,
joins the relatively modest literature of quality that provides valuable insight
into the successes and failures of this vital segment of American higher
education.âEUR?--David W. Breneman, University Professor and Dean, Newton and Rita
Meyers Professor in Economics of Education, University of Virginia
âEURoeWritten by a scholar knowledgeable about community colleges, this book takes
a unique approach. The author contrasts neo-liberalism, defined as ascribing
responsibility for poverty with the individual and with social justice, which is
fairness and the equalizing of advantage, and describes how community colleges
are the educational sites where the two conflicts are played out. He takes the
institutions to task for their alignment with the worst aspects of
neo-liberalism and marketed themselves as âEUR~a salvation forâEUR|.economic
development,âEUR(TM) to the detriment of what should be their main mission.âEUR?--Arthur M.
Cohen, Emeritus Professor, University of California, Los Angeles
