Gov. suggests ways to save community colleges
Governor Jerry Brown thinks the idea of paying for grades might be just the ticket to saving our community colleges.
The governor has suggested several ways to change community colleges. Restricting how many units a person can earn is one. Another is to pay students for finishing their course work.
Although nothing is final yet, Brown's idea is to kick back money to students who finish their courses with good grades.
A unit that now costs students $49, could get a $10 rebate or more.
Studies show that the sooner students finish their classes, the better their chance of graduating.
