Yup. These days it takes some students four years to get an Associate Degree!
If this bill allows to receive advanced education GO FOR IT! Education can open doors for students.
VIVA AMERICA! VIVA!
With budget cuts having reduced the number and frequency of course offerings to the point that the 2-year degree takes 3 or more years to obtain, I wonder what magic this proposal will employ.
Wouldn't it be nice if our kids could get all the courses needed to move up and out of the house? Where and to whom are our tax dollars going? I would really like them to go to my kids classes ! ! ! I have one who says it will be 4 years at JC, before transferring. Don't we taxpayers matter any more.
Is there any point in decades of work, if it's the offspring of those who didn't bother who get all the 'considerations'.
PERHAPS A SUGGEST TO LIFETIME STUDENTS TO GET A JOB WOULD HELP?
Great' now illegals can more free education.
In theory, the comm-coll system should be incorporated with the CSU system. That being said, our bureaucrats in SAC would do a fine job screwing it an already underperforming system that produces a never ending stream of unemployable graduates....Not all, but most. Yes I can site case after case of employees I have hired from chico SSU etc that are not fit for the real world. Thoughts?
Does not knowing the difference between 'site' and 'cite' qualify as being "fit for the real world?"
And would you hire someone who wrote your second sentence?
Pity the poor CSU Chico grads who work at places with incompetent bosses.
The JC system saved me a bundle on lower division courses before transferring to a 4-year school to finish my BA in the early 80s. Indeed, the savings made it possible for me to continue on for my MA. Now, any money you save at the JC is offset by having to wait for classes until you are past retirement age.
Ironically, I guess, getting the break that allowed me to get an MA way back then put me in a position to be able to afford tuition for my kids when they got to college.
Increasing tuition and decreasing availability of classes are rendering JCs irrelevant.
Perhaps if a JC can award an AA in some fields then hopefully a curriculum can be structured so that a BA can be completed within a 4 yr. period.
Thus far all I've heard is that somebody is considering a 4 yr. degree program and that such a program might be completed on a JC campus. I believe that it is quite possible to complete a BA program on a JC campus. Perhaps other state university or universities can provide coursework for yrs. 3 & 4. It already happens on some Junior College campuses.
Good Luck working out how it will be structured.
This is a really bad idea. These BAs/BSs will be commoditized crap.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
