Santa Monica College Students Protest Summer Fees

According to the article “about 100 students protesting a plan to offer high-priced courses at Santa Monica College this summer tried to storm into a meeting of the college’s Board of Trustees on Tuesday evening.” The plan would have enacted a two-tier pricing plan that would have charged some students more for the same courses. Such proposals are being considered more frequently by institutions looking to compensate for cuts in state/local funding.
