Cuts to Cumberland College affect adult basic education, scholarships - Devan C. Tasa, Parkland Review

Adult basic education and scholarships at Cumberland College will be affected by cuts announced in the provincial budget. The college will lose $127,300 off of its operating grant, a five per cent cut. It will lose $60,000 for adult basic education. The province will also only match $48,000 worth of scholarships, down from $74,000. “Overall, we didn’t find it was as harsh a budget as we were anticipating or expecting,” said Tom Weegar, the college’s president. “We were kind of preparing for that anyway, so we were ready for that reduction. It means we can’t do as much as we’d like to.” http://www.parklandreview.ca/regional-news/cuts-to-cumberland-college-affect-adult-basic-education-scholarships-1.12853493
