To reduce expenses, Cuesta College is canceling most of its summer session. The press release says “Cuesta College experienced near record enrollment numbers for the 2009-2010 school year. This pushed the college’s Full Time Equivalent Student (FTES) count above the state formulated funding cap, resulting in approximately 400 unfunded FTES.”
So, rising state colleges and university fees create a record enrollment at the Community College and then they shut down classes for those that want to get an education because there are too many students.
When do we declare an education crisis??
