They just saw an unprecedented double-digit decline
COVID-19’s impact on the community college system is hurting American higher education, data from many different sources show.
The community college system provides several benefits to an individual pursuing higher education. Among the benefits is the affordability of the education provided.
Educationdata.org reports that students spend an average total cost of $25,615 for an academic year at a 4-year public institution in the United States and a total of $53,949 at a traditional private university.

In contrast, four-year institutions during the same time span saw a positive 10 percent increase in enrollment from 9.9 million students to 11 million students.However, the decline in community college enrollment got steeper after the arrival of COVID.In a report released in the fall of 2021, the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center showed community college enrollment numbers had decreased from 2019 to 2020 by an alarming 9.5 percent from the previous year.The enrollment numbers of community colleges have suffered a never before seen double-digit decrease of 11.3 percent from the previous year in the Spring of 2021, a report for Clearinghouse shows. What’s driving the decline? The […]

Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today.

The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
