Two years ago, President Barack Obama launched what he called a “historic” campaign to bolster the nation’s community colleges. These days, however, the sour economy seems to have left a far deeper imprint on community colleges than the president’s American Graduation Initiative.http://www.miamiherald.com/2011/07/17/2318722/obstacles-litter-the-way-to-earning.html
The economic funk sparked a surge in students enrolling at community colleges, but downsized state budgets made it hard for schools to add enough classes to serve everyone. And the $12 billion in federal funding that Obama promised community colleges never arrived.
That will be history's verdict on the Obama administration - - Obama's promise never arrived.
