  • Community Colleges in Crisis: Resourceful California Students Taking Courses Online

    Barry Lenson

    You’ve heard the old expression, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.” There’s a lot of truth in that. When resourceful people face obstacles, they don’t stop or stall. They dig down, find new energy, and keep moving forward. That could explain why a growing number of students from California have chosen to take courses at StraighterLine and through StraighterLine’s Partner College program.
