February 1948
Education Digest;Feb1948, Vol. 13 Issue 6, p54
The article presents a report on higher education in the United States from the Commission on Higher Education concerning education for 1960. The year 1960 was chosen by the Commission because the President directed it to propose long-range policy for higher education based on a general population fact about the boys and girls who will enrol in college in 1960. By 1960, the Commission would like to see the college enrolment doubled to 4,600,000 and the emergence of established community colleges offering at least two years of free college work.
