Our Santa Barbara Adult Ed classes were canceled this past summer.
The number of Santa Barbara Adult Ed classes has been greatly reduced this semester.
There is talk that Empty Bowls, that great fundraiser for the Santa Barbara Food Bank, is no longer being supported by SBCC Adult Ed.
But wait! Our SBCC Adult Ed is providing classes to the Ventura County Jail inmates. The board approved the deal (“Memorandum of Understanding”) with Ventura County unanimously so it was not just an administrative decision. This happened last October, at about the same time nearly 100 classes were cut from the Adult Ed schedule.
Perhaps it’s time to elect new members to the Board of Trustees, people who will question the administration’s decisions.
