 In Calif., Prop 30 Is Crucial to Serve More Student Veterans 


From the flight deck of the USS Midway Museum in San Diego, leaders from southern California community colleges on Wednesday made a simple point: Shrinking state funding is curbing their ability to serve returning military veterans eager to continue their higher education.

More than 20,000 veterans, active military and their dependents joined leaders from nine community colleges in San Diego and Imperial counties to urge state lawmakers to pay attention to the issue, which will grow more dire as more veterans return from tours of the Middle East over the next several months.
