The community colleges of America also seemed to reflect upon theincreasing authority of external power over each individual’s life and the strange Americancitizen’s belief and thinking that individuals legitimately cannot be healthy, ill, and observantreligiously employed and educated unless any of the institution sanctions or allows that aspect ofthe being. The intuitions of society which give practical value to the society were formed.Perhaps, the simplest and overarching cause for the increase and development of communitycollege in America was the high demand of king that was placed and kept on school at each ofthe level. All the personal or social problems were supposedly to be solved by the school(Barrow, et al., 2014). The legislature and courts have pressurized the schools to mitigate theconcept of discrimination through the merging of students all through the lines of ethics in thevarious programs offered by them. The community colleges are given the expectation to solveand clear the problems and issues related to unemployment with the process of preparation of thestudents for the job.

Thislist can be extended for showing the responsibility to do something and take measures aboutsocietal and individual ills, inequitable incomes, teenage pregnancy, alcoholism and drug abusewhich was assigned and accounted to the schools immediately after the issues were identifiedand recognized. Schools were supposed even to amend the long extended issue of deaths onhighway. In the place of lowering the limit of speed and the need for compulsion to use the seatbelts of car in the year 1960, most of the states had enacted the laws which required the schoolsto give the courses and education of driver courses (Bogue, et al., 1950).

Many new and latest technologies demand skilled and educated executers andoperators. In order to train them, schools are required. The mobility of the individual was kept atthe topmost esteem as well as the belief was famous that the people who implemented overthemselves very diligently may enhance and advance most quickly. The information sourceabout many of the colleges are different as they may not or may involve few of the branchcampuses of two years in public universities and the schools which were accredited by Nationbased Technical and Trade schools and not by Associations for Region based accreditations andvarious other technical institutes categories (Crisp, et al., 2014). The Community colleges ofAmerica is defined as an institution which is accredited to the Associate in Science andAssociate in Arts as the highest degree.
