LACCD Cancelling Summer Classes

June 1, 2009 at 2:57 pm Leave a comment

So, the community college district over here is getting all these budget cuts. They decided to cancel all summer sessions that start after June 1st. I was planning on taking four classes this summer, now I can only take two. Totally lame. Also, I think other forms of financial aid (EOP&S, Cal Grants, etc.) are gonna be offering less now.

I’ve never really been much of an activist… even when it comes to something that directly affects me. But I do like to spread the word about issues around me sometimes. I don’t have much time to blog about this because I have stuff for finals to work on all this week. Otherwise, this would be a pretty long post… but I’ll share some links and whatnot for those of you interested in doing something about it.

Also, there will be a protest at Trade Tech — Information on that is here: http://laeastside.com/2009/06/community-college-and-cut-backs-protest-230-today-trade-tech/

Let’s hope this doesn’t cause me to be at ELAC longer than I had planned :/
