As the cost of attending a public or private university in California has skyrocketed, more students are relying on community college for some or all of their education. A ballot measure would help provide our local high school graduates and community greater access to high-quality, affordable college education to prepare students for future careers or a four-year degree. This funding would help update classrooms, labs and facilities to equip students with the modern skills and job training they need to succeed in 21st-century careers. College of Marin is a vitally important resource for the community, and our facilities and technology need to stay current.
