Slashing Community College Education

Hosted by

California's master plan for higher education says all high school graduates are eligible for community college admission, but now that temporary taxes are being allowed to expire, some 400,000 students are likely to be rejected — 30,000 in LA alone. We talk with students, the chancellor of LA's community colleges and a high-ranking Republican Party official. Also, how the Hughes Aircraft Company lived up to its name, after Howard Hughes was long gone. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, will California and other states invest enough in education to keep the US competitive?
