What the Expert Says:

The value of education is commensurate with where the student completed their degree. The university system is viewed as the pinnacle of education. Within colleges and universities is a hierarchy of tiers. Tier one universities are known for higher quality teaching, higher standards, and requiring research and scholarly publications. Community colleges are excellent and included opportunities for Associate Degrees with the combination of moving into a university to earn baccalaureate (bachelor's), masters and doctoral credentials.

The community colleges are particularly helpful in providing a foundation of skills that prepare a student for universities. Many career fields have certification requirements that may be completed with an associate's degree (Fire Science, Child Care Specialist, etc.).
