So how are students and community-college folks reacting to TV series Community? It’s been out for a bit, but I stumbled across a silly little piece that looked at some of the things that it got right — and a few that it didn’t. (And it has several clips from the series.)
Made me think of the recent survey I did about images people here in Minnesota had in their heads when they thought of two-year schools — and whether community colleges carried a stigma.
