New Aspen Institute Report: “Helping Adult Learners Navigate Community College and the Labor Market”

After all that depressing news about college in my last post, the least I can do is share this new report, Helping Adult Learners Navigate Community College and the Labor Market, released by the Aspen Institute’s Workforce Strategies Initiative back in February— although I just got a notice about it today.

The report looks at the challenges adult learners face “as they attempt to enter community college, persist to completing a certificate or degree, and successfully transition to employment,” and is designed to assist workforce development leaders, community colleges, and workforce investment boards help adult learners navigate both  the community college campus and the labor market.
