About 30 students were pepper sprayed by campus police while protesting a new two-tier pricing plan for courses at a Santa Monica College Board of Trustees meeting.
Santa Monica trustees voted today to put a hold on their controversial plan to offer a two-tiered pricing structure for classes. The plan would have called for bumping the costs of some popular courses nearly five-fold.
SMC professor says class cost increases are like abortion. Nobody's for it but sometimes it's necessary.
