a promise for the future

Image result for victor valley college
i attended a junior college
my wife she attended junior college
my historian brother attended junior college
i have a bachelor degree and a medical degree
my wife she has a bachelor degree and some graduate work
my historian brother has two bachelor degrees one masters degree and a phd

we all might not have gone to college if we had not had the local junior college available to gives us the start we needed
i know for sure i wouldnt have gone back to college

junior college gives many folks a bridge between high school and a four year school
for myself and my brother both of us flunked out of school our first semester of regular four year school
we both needed some maturity to happen before we were able to restart our college careers

more and more kids are attending junior colleges now
many do it since its cheaper
if you listen to dave ramsey much you know he tells folks to go to junior college to get the first two years and then transfer to a four year school for the last two years
a not expensive one

i am amazed at folks who get a 4 year degree from an expensive school
for the cost of over $120,000+
many owe most of that on student loans
if they become a school teacher then they will be able to pay it off maybe before they start drawing social security at 65

so junior colleges are here for second chances convenience and to save you a lifetime of debt

so its with interest i read this article in the local online newspaper here

the local junior college or community college i guess its called now
if you live in their community college district
offers free college
yes free college
there we go paying our tax monies for free college
its all from private donations
so no whining on that one

my impression is that
you have to
go straight from high school to college
straight from the military to college
take at least 12 units
maintain a certain grade average
do it in 2 years
now i did mine in 4 years since i took only 2 classes a semester
once i reestablished that i was college material i went full time

i like the feel of this program
do the work on time and you qualify
dont do the work on time then you dont qualify
maybe this is what is missing in a lot of the community colleges
some accountibility

although i wouldnt have qualified for this program or my brother or my wife she
i wish there were more of these across the usa

this is a promise for the future
for those who take advantage
especially those who are financial disadvantaged

i like it
