‘Free’ College in Cali

City College of San Francisco will be free of charge to all city residents under a deal announced Monday by Mayor Ed Lee and Supervisor Jane Kim that college trustees hope will lead to an enrollment jolt and more state funding for the school.

Under the agreement, which is expected to take effect in the fall, the city will pay $5.4 million a year to buy out the $46-a-credit fee usually paid by students.

The city’s contribution will also provide $250 a semester to full-time, low-income students who already receive a state-funded fee waiver. They will be able to use the money to pay for books, transportation, school supplies and health fees. Part-time students with fee waivers will get $100 a semester for the same purpose.

“Now we can say to California resident students that your City College is free,” Lee said at a City Hall news conference with Kim, City College trustees, faculty members, acting Chancellor Susan Lamb and others. “This is a good story.”

    The college is hopeful that this will increase their enrollment. Well since it will be free to the students and directly cost the tax payers what good does it do. Education has always been there and if someone wanted it badly enough they could find a way to get it. By this being free, it might be worth just what they had to pay. NOTHING.

    Hopefully this will work out well for all parties involved. Higher education has a way of not being the best manager of money. To cover their spending incompetence they raise rates. The city may get a chance to see what students deal with as they deal with steadily rising prices.

      So I’m supposed to pick up the short fall with my property taxes? Where are they going to get the money to do this. I mean they hired Eric Holder to defend Illegals in this state so where are they going to get that money? This state is Broke and has hundreds of $Billions of unfunded liabilities! Where are they going to get the money?

      You are a moron, I have watched my state deteriorate into the epicenter of Insane Liberal Ideology paid for on the backs of the working citizens of this state, jsut so taht they can give Socilaism another shot!.

      CA is #1 in “non- working, versus working people” category of the 11 states that are upside down. With well over 50% of the state not working and the remainder paying for them.

      If Trump cuts off Federal Funds for Sanctuary Cites that will slow all of this down.

      If for some reason our insane Liberal Elected Officials decide that CA will Leave the Union,,,,THERE WILL BE A FIGHT!

      Here’s what they are pushing. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/481bc9fd2705ff99bfcc6cf14df6cb6ca128eed5f83e3b318faca56337b04ec6.jpg

        College is expensive. The politicians are going to learn that first hand if enough of their residents decide to take them up on the “free” education. According to the story many students will still get stuck paying a variety of fees and for their books.

        Hopefully this will work out well for all parties involved, but that isn’t likely to happen.

        Excellent commentary! Socialism is the destruction of nations, to rule the world. And the enslavement of those within. They could care less about people. And, free education, will be complete indoctrination…which we see already, in our state institutions.
