The President of Cuesta College is speaking up about those big classroom cuts. Around 150 classes are being cut this summer due to the economic downturn. Classes on emergency medical services, nursing and psychiatric technician training remain on the schedule. Cuesta's President said many campuses are having problems and this is Cuesta's way of handling the budget crisis.
Dr. Gilbert Stork, Cuesta Superintendent/President, said, "We had several choices to consider, one was to spread it over the three different terms. The other was do we focus in on one particular time of the year in which it would impact the fewest number of students."
The move was made to balance Cuesta's budget after federal stimulus funds were eliminated.
