Montana’s 2-year colleges hail Obama’s aid announcement
Leaders of Montana two-year colleges applauded President Barack Obama’s proposal Tuesday to pump $12 billion into community colleges nationally, with one calling it the most significant news in two-year education in several generations.
“It looks to me like this will be quite significant,” said John Cech, dean of the Montana State University-Billings College of Technology. “I think today will likely be a very historic day for two-year education across the United States. This is probably one of the most significant announcements since the end of World War II.”
John Garic, dean of Montana Tech’s College of Technology in Butte, called Obama’s plan “wonderful.”
