San Diego Community College District and Budget Cuts – Since 2009 the State of California has cut the budgets alloted to all three of the San Diego Community College campuses and the result has been the discontinuation of many summer programs as well as the end of programs that allowed high school honors students to take classes at the colleges. The schools themselves hope to offset some of the damage done by the cuts though by increasing the number of people enrolled in privately paid continuing education classes.
