      A glance at the April/May issue of "Community College Journal":
      Older is wiser when recruiting new students

      As the baby-boom generation nears retirement, community colleges
      should prepare for a boom of their own, says Donald R. Read, a
      professor in the department of business and information systems
      at Bronx Community College of the City University of New York.

      "Day classes will start to look more like evening classes, with
      many more students who are older, experienced, and motivated,"
      he writes.

      "It appears," he continues, "that many people retire, not
      because the work is becoming a physical burden or because their
      health is failing, but because they have done the same thing for
      too long and are simply bored or burned out."

      Whether those people return to college to train for new careers
      or just for the joy of learning new things, "they will be the
      kind of students we love: motivated, world-wise, clear about why
      they are in school, learning for pleasure," Mr. Read says.

      And while the growth of that population should benefit all kinds
      of colleges, many older people are "strongly place-bound by
      families, friends, real estate, etc.," he says, so "they are
      likely to look to a nearby education solution: the local
      community college."
