Cali Community College Campuses Strained!

The trickle down effect of the faltering economy is affecting every sector of our country. Downsizing and cutbacks have an immediate strain, and now the Los Angeles Times reports that 2 year Community Colleges in California are being pushed to the brink because enrollment is increasing due to the economic downturn. The resulting impact of the overcrowding is that many students are unable to take required classes, and earn resulting credits necessary to transfer to a 4 year school. African Americans and Latinos make up the majority of the students at the 2 year campuses.
