California Online College Targets Working Adults

To open up access to higher education for more people, the California Community College system and Governor Jerry Brown are looking to launch an online-only community college. The college would be designed to serve working adults who want to upgrade their skill set or complete a post-secondary program but for whom personal responsibilities or distance can create barriers to higher education.

The plan to create this college originated with a request from Brown, who touted the idea last week in his final State of the State speech as governor.
