=Budget cuts at the state level and fiscal reductions at the local level for the last few years have forced some colleges to shutter summer-school programs, despite a need to educate more students with an already reduced number of class offerings. This year marks the second that the College of the Sequoias has canceled its summer instructional session. The school eliminated the summer school schedule in 2010 as a cost-cutting measure. “It’s horrible. No one is enjoying this,” said Duncan Graham, vice president of student services.
