Call Senator Block on Wednesday

Assembly Budget Subcommittee on Education Finance (3/19)
Numerous concerns were laid out in the committee's staff analysis of the issue, including:
  • The amount of funding may not be appropriate and does not address the adult education needs
  • It is unclear if community colleges could or would offer the same type of adult education programs currently offered in the K-12 system
  • The proposal lacks clarity on how community colleges would contract with K-12 adult schools
  • The proposal does not include any reporting or data requirements
In addition to these concerns, education stakeholders testified that if adult education is shifted to community colleges, access would become both a physical and psychological barrier to adults who would transition from classes at a K-12 school site to a college campus. Concerns were also raised that the demand for citizenship classes will boom with immigration reform and that community colleges would not be prepared. Members of the public encouraged the Assembly Budget Subcommittee to build upon the existing bifurcated system and strengthen the collaboration between K-12 and community college districts. 


Tell him to keep K-12 adult ed where it is and provide designated funding for adult keep districts from cutting adult ed
