"The D.C.-based non-profit the Aspen Institute has ranked the nation's top 120 community colleges. Dr. Jill Biden, a community college professor, and Education Secretary Arne Duncan helped present the winners today.
The analysis and resulting list are part of an initiative to improve graduation rates among the six million Americans who enroll in the primarily two-year, public educational institutions each year. Community colleges are now the fastest-growing sector of higher education in this country, with students making up 40 percent of total undergrads nationwide."
