Montgomery College Board of Trustees Vote to Support Maryland Dream Act

In a meeting held last Thursday night, the Montgomery College Board of Trustees voted to take a position in support of the ballot question on the Maryland Dream Act.The resulting resolution, approved at the meeting, says: “…there are many reasons for support of the Dream Act, including that it benefits both the students and the community by providing a valuable, better educated workforce, encouraging not only high school graduation but enabling higher education training at a tuition cost that is affordable and otherwise, without this Act, out of reach for most of these students; it leverages the public investment already made in these students in the K–12 school system; and it costs the taxpayers and the College very little and, in fact, the College may actually lose money if these students were not eligible for the lowest rate of tuition.”
