Nearly half a million community college students starting school this fall are on wait lists to get into classes, according to a new survey being released this morning by the state. It offers a snapshot of the growing challenges California residents face in getting a degree. Community college enrollment numbers were also announced today. Enrollment dropped to 2.4 million. About half a million students have been lost in the community college system since the 2008-2009 school year's budget cuts.


Jack Scott, the Chancellor of California Community Colleges. Scott will retire on Sept. 15
