Analyst Says Community College Fee Increase Good Idea

Brown's budget would increase community college fees from twenty six dollars to thirty six dollars per unit, starting in July. The non-partisan legislative analyst approves of the idea - and in fact, even suggests going as high as forty dollars a unit.  In his report, Analyst Mac Taylor says a fee increase would leverage more federal funds and wouldn't hurt the neediest students, because their fees are waived.   Brown has proposed a 400 million dollar cut to community colleges.  Taylor points out the fee increase would help mitigate that by bringing in 110 million dollars a year.  Taylor says even at 36 dollars a unit, the fees would still be the lowest in the country.
