  •  A hearty yes! (7+ / 0-)

    As a product of Cali's community college system and as someone who still (wistfully) watches CA's politics, I can't help but endorse the heck out of this measure.  Yes, CCs there are still cheaper there than just about anywhere else in the nation, but that's part of the point.  California's higher education system is one of the best in the world AND they have pretty admirable ways for historically disadvantaged people to actually have a good shot.  I also believe affordable CCs make good business sense in that a higher educated individual most often brings in a higher income, has more disposable income, becomes part of a higher tax base, etc.  No, we shouldn't couch everything in financial terms...but if something will likely work as an investment, that surely should be noted.
