Transcription: 
The issue of community college is a twofold issue. Number one, it can be a place where college dreams go to die. You are going to community college because your grades aren't good enough, because you want to experiment with college, or because you are working 40 hours a week, that's as far as you are going to go. If you are going to community college because you don't have the money to go to college and you want to build up a two year degree plan, and that community college is associated with a four year college, then community college can work for you. If you go in there and make your grades and do your studying seriously, you go to class and get your homework done; the four year colleges will pay attention. If you are just going there because you haven't made the grades to go to a four year school, that's where you are going to stay.
