A bill that would allow two-year colleges in California to charge higher tuition for popular classes has been sent to Gov. Jerry Brown for his signature. If signed, the new law doesn't guarantee tuition increases, since schools can opt to set the higher fees or not. However, opponents say the law would hurt low-income students. "This bill will create two classes of students, those who can pay and finish and those who can't. It's not the mission of a community college to be like a private college," said Andrea Donado, student trustee in the Long Beach Community College District.
