USA Today College Reports on Community Colleges Article

USA Today College reported on a research project that I participated in along with Dr. Cassandra Hart and Elizabeth Freidmann about the impact of online community college courses  in California.  A link to the article can be found here:  http://college.usatoday.com/2015/05/22/study-online-community-college-courses-found-to-be-ineffective/.  We were actually quite careful in our paper, and the subsequent presentations at AERA and NBER, to avoid the implication that the courses were ineffective.  There is still a lot to learn about online education in general, and we recommend against jumping to any hasty conclusions!
