Re "Students failing to finish" (Our Region, April 21): I am one of the students who entered community college during the time period discussed. The reason I dropped out was because I was unable to get the classes I needed for the certificate I wanted.
When I spoke to the counseling department, I was told I was new and therefore a low priority student. I would need to take other courses until I had a high enough priority to get the classes I needed. In other words, pay tuition fees to attend classes I did not need or want.
Either the schools should offer enough sessions of a class to accommodate the students in that program or limit the enrollment in the program to the number they can accommodate.
