B.A. Degrees By Community Colleges Part Of Kasich Budget Plan
Ohio's community colleges would be able to offer bachelor's degrees in certain circumstances under a proposal in the budget Governor John Kasich releases Monday. Students would be able to get a bachelors' degree from a community college when businesses express a need for workers with advanced training and a four-year university is unable to offer the necessary training. Kasich's higher education plan will also call for using state-based financial aid to cover costs of going to college in the summer months, which aren't covered by the federal Pell Grant. He also proposes expanded advanced-placement courses in high schools and credentialing more teachers.
