Yesterday we highlighted a piece from Tom Hilliard at the Center for Urban Future about the need for Mayor de Blasio to focus on supporting CUNY community colleges. The report detailed interventions that CUNY community colleges have created to help students get accepted, stay in and get jobs through early college experiences. CUNY CareerPATH was highlighted as a successful workforce training program, and one that should be enhanced with greater support and collaboration throughout the city:
“Not only does Career Path deserve to be scaled up, it also would benefit from deeper coordination with city workforce, education and youth development agencies, which the de Blasio administration could expedite.”
