It’s been an unprecedented back-to-school season for all schools and students, but today we want to check in on our region’s community colleges.
Community college students who are low-income and have less access to resources such as wifi, laptops or quiet places to study are especially at a disadvantage at this time, when so much schooling is done at home. Some may have had to drop out of school completely in order to work, which is reflected in the national numbers that showed an 8 percent decline of enrollment this fall.
We check in with the presidents of three of Southern California’s community colleges. Plus, if you’re a student who’s struggling or had to drop out because of the pandemic, we want to hear your story. Call us at 866-893-5722.
