The vast amount of Californians that are affected by the gradual decay of what once was a thriving job market full of growth and promise, now a wasteland for the unemployed. After a devastating blow to the working class, the solution by most citizens in distress was to find answers to their poverty-stricken fates through a higher form of education.
Budget cuts impacted California Community Colleges by 12 percent, calculating over $809 million through a duration spanning 5 years. From the recession to the current laid-off populous, this resulted in the over-saturation of class-rooms, the over population of campuses--forcing upon the state to raise tuition, tighten up the criteria for FAFSA, Bog Waivers and other forms of state assistance to ensure a pleasurable college experience for those without the means or resources to help themselves.

The highly supported Proposition 30 has gradually been changing and improving the California Community College system--not just for students but for employees as well. In this fine attempt to improve the education system, an allocated temporary tax revenue of 89 percent will be funneled toward K-12 schools and 11 percent toward community colleges. A one-quarter cent for every dollar sales tax increase for 4 years, a personal tax increase for incomes $250,000 and over for the next 7 years is expected to generate a surplus tax revenue of approximately $6 billion devoted to education and other California State funded programs.
