The state of Florida, by most accounts, has one of the most successful community college systems in the United States. It’s led the country in the number of associates degrees issued for six straight years. Traditionally, most of those degree holders entered the work force or moved on to a four-year university. But thanks to recent state legislation, more community colleges can retain those students by offering their own bachelor’s degree programs. And as Steve Brown reports, the move could give traditional universities some previously-unseen competition.
