The community college option

Sent to The 74 (74 million reasons to to talk education)

In response to "New Student Data Show That Half of Graduating Seniors in LA Not Eligible for California’s Public Universities" (April 6), George McKenna points out that many graduates not eligible for the University of California would be eligible to attend a community college. 

In a brilliant letter to the editor of the LA Times (Jan. 26, 2017), Ron Garber pointed out that there is no shame "in attending an affordable, high-quality, local community college before completing your four-year degree at a UC or state university."

Besides, Garber points out, you will save over $60,000 and wind up in the same place as someone who attended UC for the full four years.
