Summary From his unique vantage point as President and CEO of the Association of Community College Trustees, the author writes about the intersection between community colleges and America's need to regain economic momentum and its position as first in the world with respect to college attainment. By connecting past economic and education policies and investments to possibilities for the future and continued national progress, he reminds us that restoring America's prominence is within reach. More importantly, he advocates for the power of community colleges to increase educational attainment, thereby reducing income inequality by allowing more Americans to access real economic opportunity.
