prop 30 BY albert722 Proposition 30 For the last couple of years, students have been struggling to enroll in college courses and colleges have been struggling with offering more courses due to school budget cuts. Statistics showed that since 2007, class sections have dropped about 24% and enrollment decreased according to L. A Times. More than 470,000 students started the semester on the waiting list due to the insufficient number of courses the colleges had to offer due to the major budget cuts.
Also many colleges had to cut off summer and winter sessions due to the insufficient funds making it harder for students to finish faster. Since Proposition 30 was passed, there has been progress in colleges through out California. Colleges through out California are starting off the new fall term with more classes offered and a higher number in enrollments. The number of students starting this new fall semester on the waiting list went from 470,000 to 7,157.
It is stimated that the Orange Coast College is adding more than 200 class sections this fall that will offer more than 6,500 new seats for students to fill in. Colleges in California have added new courses, more seats, and new Jobs for professors with the help of prop 30. In my opinion as a student, Prop 30 has added more courses and more seats available in colleges in California. Little by little the schools have improved by offering more courses and more seats making it easier for students to register for a course hey need.
This improves the speed in which a student can graduate and also the number of people that register to earn a degree. With the new class sections added, more Jobs are added which improves the unemployment rate in California. This really benefits everyone by adding new classes, Jobs, and a better future. http://www. latimes. com/obituaries/la-me-college-enr011-20130912,0,5308464. story Title: California community colleges report higher enrollment, more classes By Carla Rivera September 11, 2013, 8:21 p. m.
