SBCC and Berkeley City.

A lot of people are getting degrees without getting a college education. You might not have submitted a paper yourself, but I bet your name was on submissions as a contributor (usually masters and PhD students submit papers, undergrad students just contribute to them).

I doubt it, I was a math major.

Liberal Arts, such as math, have the widest selection of academic journals.

That may be true but I'm pretty sure nobody submitted my stoch calc homework to any journals.

What do you guys think about this? Personally my first reaction was, that's stupid. But the more I thought about it, the more Im ok with it. We dump billions of dollars into other nations in futile attempts to "democratize" them and it fails. We spent trillions on failed wars and international policing....and they fail. We literally GIVE money to some Nations.....

If we're going to waste money like that then fine, lets at least use a "little bit" to better ourselves....

Someone is going to pay for this. And it won't be Obama. In fact he just dumped his vacation bill on the taxpayer. Him and Manshelle has spent 1.4 Billion on themselves in vacations since they stepped into the WH. If America is 'borrowing" from China where is Obama getting this money to pay for this "freebie" education that is not so free since the professors want a paycheck and so does the rest of the school staff.

Oh, I'm not talking about homework. I'm talking about the research you did outside of the classroom. The academic work with professors and PhD students (where the real college education comes from). No one is going to care about the classroom work.

The education level of this country always comes into question when we have people living here who cannot even spell the First Lady's name.

I'm not sure what China has to do with this given how little skin they have in the game.

The same term that Reagan used with his "free phone" program.

In WA, the setup is a little different. The program is called Running Start, and it pays up to 2 years of community college for qualified attending HS Seniors/Juniors. Does this mean those students would qualify another 2 years of free college after high school?
Probably not, and that's a problem - the aim of this program (free to nearly free CC) is already available in many, if not most, states, through existing state run programs. The programs may not be setup for "free CC" but they can effectively function as such.

This program seems awfully redundant in many respects.
