NC Community Colleges: Not keeping up (funding-wise)

NC Community Colleges: Not keeping up (funding-wise) | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

RALEIGH – North Carolina’s community colleges are respected and loved by their communities – 58 colleges spread throughout the state, within a 30-minute drive of 95% of North Carolinians. And they are a critical link in North Carolina’s workforce and economic development. 

Becky Roehrs's insight:

Yep, the NC General Assembly provides less and less support for NC community college students (they keep the student tuition and dole back some to the community colleges), and faculty pay is actually going down, down, down. Faculty are paid less than NC K-12 teachers, and often have to have a Master's degree to teach.

“Free” community college? - Higher Education Works Foundation

“Free” community college? - Higher Education Works Foundation | Education and Tech Tools | Scoop.it

Our neighbors in Tennessee invented “free” community college. In 2014, Republican Gov. Bill Haslam launched the Tennessee Promise – two years of tuition-free community college for Tennessee high school graduates.  

Becky Roehrs's insight:

Wow, 30,000 new TN community college students in 3 years!

Congrats North Carolina students who are attending community colleges who are offering free college courses!!
