This is a topic that should not even be up for discussion. There are a countless number of individuals who depend on Laney to further their academic endeavors.
Community Colleges were made for students who couldn’t initially afford to attend a 4 year college. Students would attend a CC to receive an Associate’s Degree then transfer to a 4 year college for a Bachelor’s Degree.
Laney has been standing solid since 1953 and is the eldest of the Peralta Community Colleges.
It’s in a beneficial location for most of its students to get to since it’s right by Bart and not too far from Downtown Oakland. I feel
Laney should be kept just how it is.
