Brown Promises Money and Tough Love for Community Colleges

Hosted by

After passage of Proposition 30, which raised taxes last year, Governor Brown said he'd use some new money to help the state's 112-campus system of community colleges. His new budget proposes some $200 million in new funding, along with reforms designed to speed students through a process in which many get lost. We hear more from Kathy Baron, who reports for EdSource, an online news site covering California's education process, and from Santa Monica College President Chui Tsang.
