Top state college programs risk getting slashed due to proposed budget cuts - News 4 Jacksonville

Florida state colleges face more than $50 million in budget cuts proposed by state lawmakers in the House and Senate. College presidents estimate tens of thousands of students statewide could be affected. “It just wouldn't set people up well and people might get overwhelmed,” said Dr. Cynthia Bioteau, president of Florida State College at Jacksonville. “And a lot of people do use the tutoring resources that are here at TCC.” The cuts could reduce the number and quality of remedial education services such as tutoring -- a service some students need to succeed. “It's not that the services will go away,” said Delaney Stoner, a student at Tallahassee Community College. “They just won't be as readily available, and in fact, they will be group services as opposed to individual services.” http://www.news4jax.com/news/top-state-college-programs-risk-getting-slashed-due-to-proposed-budget-cuts
