A new poll shows the vast majority of Americans feel it's better for some students to go to community college instead of a four-year school.
According to the poll by The Associated Press and Stanford University released Tuesday, 71 percent say it's sometimes better for students to pursue a diploma or certificate from a two-year school than aim to enter a four-year college.
But a higher percent of minorities - who are more likely than whites to enroll in a two-year college - say four-year schools are the better option. The numbers reveal a disconnect between where minority students want to go to college and where they often end up.
The poll was conducted Sept. 23-30 by Abt SRBI Inc. It involved telephone interview with 1,001 adults nationwide, and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
