Where Communities Go To College

Community colleges get a bad rap. But recent graduates of Maryland’s Frederick Community College say that stigma is undeserved. These new and soon-to-be-teachers make a powerful case for learning – and teaching – close to home. Warning: this episode may upend preexisting notions about the relationship between education and place, not to mention how we define “smart.” Episode transcript is here. Special guests: Professor Sarah Bigham, Frederick Community College and an all-star cast of FCC grads.
