Vote YES on Measure E

Original post made by KEN HOROWITZ, another community, on Sep 25, 2010

Foothill College and De Anza College are among the best community colleges in the nation. Today, community colleges are becoming increasingly important, as the cost of four-year universities can be too expensive for many families.

Due to State budget cuts, however, Foothill and De Anza Colleges have been forced to cut over $20 million over the past two years. In response, course offerings have been reduced, hundreds of full- and part-time faculty and staff positions have been eliminated and administration has been cut to a bare minimum.Thousands of students are on waiting lists for classes.

Vote Yes on Measure E to provide stable local funding for Foothill and De Anza colleges to support core academic courses and ensure students can continue to receive training for future careers.
