Reform To Think About
I have read many editorials and articles regarding California's budget mess. We can argue about many issues but one thing is clear; the state is out of money. The lack of a healthy budget is preventing students at COC from taking many sections that normally would be available. The school is being compensated by Sacramento to keep those sections afloat. In an effort to stabalize COC's own financial defecit many departments are being asked to not offer summer classes. Is there any hope that in the future the clouds may lift? Not unless the state can generate additional revenue (higher taxes), or find a way to reform the way pensions are distributed. Here is an interesting take from a newspaper in Pasadena.
