Strategies for increasing college enrollment

President Obama is hoping to get more low income kids into college. Last week he was joined by college officials from around the country including some from Illinois to kick off a campaign aimed at enrolling more kids from that population. We talk with the head of the Illinois Community College Board about the challenges colleges face in reaching out to those who might not consider college because of cost, and hear from a student at Oakton Community College about some of the choices he's made to continue his education.
