Giving Compass’ Take:
• Rebecca Koenig, writing for EdSurge, discusses four concerns and one bright spot for community colleges closing due to coronavirus.
• One bright spot is that community colleges are coming together to help students and employing resilience strategies. How can donors provide the support necessary for these colleges?
The closure of an iconic campus like Harvard Yard attracts a lot of attention. But as the coronavirus spreads, it’s the closures of community colleges—institutions that have far less money but serve far more students—that worry many educators and researchers.
Below are four concerns academics have about how the COVID-19 pandemic may affect community colleges. They include possible disruptions to student academic progress; delays in the training of health care workers; problems meeting students’ basic needs; and worries about a looming recession.
- Disruptions to Student Progress
- Delays in Health Care Training
- Diminished Resources for Students and Institutions
- Getting Ready for Recession
