Article: Community Colleges Could Turn Away 400,000

An unprecedented 400,000 students could be turned away from California’s community college campuses next fall because state lawmakers are letting billions of dollars in taxes expire in June that would otherwise protect courses, Community College Chancellor Jack Scott said Wednesday.

Pointing to budget talks that stalled this week in Sacramento – and the resulting failure of Gov. Jerry Brown’s plan to let voters decide whether to extend and increase taxes – Scott said he expects the state to reduce its allocation to the college system by $800 million, nearly 10 percent of its total budget.
