Distance Learning
Status: 
Assigned

Whereas AB 3009 would establish a fund of $10-15 million taken away from the general fund for purposes of distance education expansion, and

Whereas distance learning instruction funded by this source would fund distance learning at no more than one half the funding rate of traditional/existing instruction, and

Whereas such social experimentation would lead to a trend to defund the community colleges and encourage low quality distance learning instruction,


Resolved that the Academic Senate oppose the concepts in AB 3009 unless the bill is amended to fund distance learning above and beyond the existing general fund and unless the bill is amended to fund distance learning at the same rate as traditional instruction.
