The ‘One College’ idea takes away who and what community colleges are

Congratulations Gov.-elect Lamont, I am confident you will usher in some much-needed changes to our state. God knows, things cannot get a whole lot worse. I am sure that, given the breakneck speed with which you will enter into this new phase of your life, you cannot respond to any crisis before the governor’s seat has at least gotten warm, but I wanted to communicate with you regarding a troubling initiative that has been several years in the making. This would be the Connecticut Board of Regents for Higher Education’s proposal to create “One College.”
