7. Some additional reasons for community college classes

They are a cheap way to satisfy classes that are not that important to you. They allow High School kids get a start at college classes. In some cases they are better taught and more reasonable in their expectations that the corresponding university course. My oldest is planning on doing her Freshman year of engineering while in High School from a community college. Since I am an engineer, I can decide whether the classes are worthwhile or not as good as she will need going forward. Everything that I have found out so far is that they prepare the kids for the last three years of engineering. While I had excellent Math and Chemistry instruction at Purdue, my Physics was the worst taught two courses which I have ever taken.
