With the House’s budget plan moving to the floor Wednesday,  the head of the state’s community college system is making it clear he’s concerned with the numbers being floated thus far. Dr. Scott Ralls issued the following statement Tuesday:

scott-ralls [1]“We are very concerned about the direction that the House Budget would take North Carolina’s community colleges.  Our per student funding from state resources has declined significantly, and we are already funded at a much lower level than other sectors of education in our state.  While the House Budget recognizes additional roles for community colleges to play and students for us to serve, it continues an overall erosion of resources that place a monumental challenge on all 58 of our community colleges. Our hope is that the final budget will better reflect the vital role community colleges play in our state’s economic recovery and reflect the Senate position.”
