Obama's education plan draws fire - CNN.com

President Obama is joined by Dr. Jill Biden during a meeting at the White House on Monday.
President Obama's new education initiative focuses on increasing the total number of college graduates by focusing on community college enrollees. I am a vocal advocate for the mission of community colleges, I believe in both the gateway that they offer to a traditional university degree, and the means by which students can gain employable vocation skills after only two years of study. But also, I like how high school students can recreate their academic life with the opportunities that open enrollment offers. Yet, what does winning the race to have the highest percentage of college graduates provide for America?
