Low persistence and graduation rates, especially among low-income young adults and minorities, are ongoing problems that U.S. higher education faces. In spite of the need for education, the uneven distribution of alternatives or the lack of capacity to meet those needs remains a barrier.

This article describes some ideas that might allow us to meet our college completion goals.
