Bloomberg's Plan to Fund Community Colleges

Inside Higher Education reports that former New York City Mayor and candidate for the Democratic nomination for president Michael Bloomberg (D-NY) has indicated in a newly released economic plan that he intends to provide investments in community and technical colleges as well as support for apprenticeship programs.

From Inside Higher Education: "The plan would invest in states, community and technical colleges, and others to work with employers to improve training for the skills employers say are needed. Additionally, the plan sets a goal to enroll one million students annually in apprenticeship programs, while making it easier for adults to get additional training, including creating a pilot program making Pell Grants available for short-term programs."
