Enrollment falls at California community colleges

California’s community colleges have cut as much as 20 percent of courses since 2008, driving enrollment to its lowest point in two decades, concludes a new report.  Enrollment fell from 2.9 million students in 2008-09 to 2.4 million students in 2011-12.

Encouraging wait-listed students to take online courses is a “massively bad idea,” writes a community college professor. Poorly prepared students can’t handle MOOCs.
