State Budget Cuts Threaten Community College Students

Hosted by

The breakdown in state budget talks may mean that as many as 400,000 students could be turned away from California's community colleges next fall. According to Community College Chancellor Jack Scott, the state could cut funding by as much as 10 percent, which he says would be a deep blow to California's economy. Student fees, which are already going up to $36 per unit, could go increase further if a budget compromise is not reached. Nanette Asimov is education reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle.
