Community Colleges Raise Tuition
Effective with the spring semester, tuition at Virginia's community colleges will go up by just under $22 for the typical three-credit course. On Thursday the State Board for Community Colleges approved a tuition increase of $7.30/credit hour to help offset cuts caused by the state budget shortfalls. The increase should help our community colleges avoid some of the layoffs and overcrowded classes that had been anticipated.
Even with the increase, Virginia's community colleges are a great deal!
Below is my first post on Coarse Cracked Corn. It remains a good description of what's happening. I look forward to your comments, but really don't give a cluck if you agree, disagree, or want to chop the chicken's head off. Most of this pecking around is just me crowing.
Coarse cracked corn is chicken feed - 8% protein, 2.50% fat, and 2.75% fiber. Good stuff made at mills right here in the Shenandoah Valley around 1900. Coarse Cracked Corn, the blog, will be a little like that - pecking around at history, news, and current events in the region. A little grain in, lots of manure out, eggs for breakfast, and a chicken in every pot.
I have no idea where this blog will go or how fast it will get there. Time will tell.
