SEATTLE, Wash. - Washington's community and technical colleges are reporting a second straight year of record enrollment.
     
Fall enrollment is expected to top 146,000, with nearly 10 percent more students enrolling.
     
Historically, community college enrollments go up during an economic downturn.
     
The director of the State Board of Community and Technical Colleges says record enrollments are continuing for a second year because the effects of the recession are lingering.
     
Enrollment in worker retraining programs is up dramatically this fall, but other categories including college transfer and adult literacy are also seeing more students.
