In Texas a student can get a Bachelors degree from a government college, including textbooks, for $10,000. The same for Florida. In California it will cost north of $100,000—another reason California is in a Depression.
Assemblyman Dan Logue took the ideas of Texas and Florida and is trying to provide the same opportunities to California students. Maybe the NAACP and Hispanic groups will work to help their communities by supporting this effort to provide quality education, a degree and without breaking the bank?
“Borrowing an idea being promoted by Republican governors in Texas and Florida, the Republican Assemblyman from Linda has introduced a bill that would create a pilot program in California for what he’s billing as a $10,000 bachelor’s degree. The degree would be available to students majoring in science, technology, engineering or math disciplines.”

With the cost of going to college already more than $30,000 a year at many California campuses, is it possible to earn a bachelor’s degree for just $10,000 – total?
Assemblyman Dan Logue hopes so.
Assembly Bill 51 calls for closer coordination between high schools, community colleges and California State University campuses and targets three regions for the pilot: Chico, Long Beach and Turlock. Participating students would earn some college credit in high school through Advanced Placement classes and greater access to community college courses. The bill calls for participating community college students to go to school full-time. CSU campuses, moreover, would be required to freeze tuition for those in the program.
