Community Colleges Need Help F.A.S.T.
A Senate bill known as the F.A.S.T. Act (Fix America’s Schools Today) would offer $30 billion for school modernizations, including $5 billion specifically for community colleges, and could go a long way toward improving opportunities for students across the country. “With a new design, we could accommodate more students,” said Jim Van Brunt at Oregon’s Rogue Community College. “And since we’re paying the laboratory instructor anyway, regardless of whether he’s got 15 or 24 students, it would be much more cost-effective and efficient.” Source: Education Votes
