High volumes of enrollment poses parking issues By The increase in student enrollment over the past two academic years has lead to major overcrowding issues of parking availability. This issue is being felt through the majority of the student body attending during day-time hours. On a typical day at FVCC parking availability tends to be at its worst from 11 am to 1 pm when the highest volume of students are on campus. FVCC has six parking lots available for students, but still students are finding that they have to park on the grass and not a designated parking space. Courtesy notes have been issued to students that have not parked in a designated parking space.
Blome, "Should American Kids Spend More Time in Class." This article gave me the opening ideas of why American students should remain in class longer than the typical 6 to 8 hours, 180 days a year. This article contained statistics on how our public schools stack up against our foreign counterparts. It also persuaded the reader through facts on why school should be longer. My next step was to read the article "Expand School Hours and You Will Expand Learning."
College Textbooks And Why They're Expensive Granof identifies many problems in his proposal to college textbooks being expensive. The main problem being the cost of used textbooks. Since the price of used textbooks has consistently increased over the years, it makes the cost of brand new textbooks to increase as well. The government has stepped in to help solve this problem but in their effort, it has only worsened. As far as the campus bookstores go, they buy back every book that will be used in the semester, used or not.
However, the school district can go one step further and deal with one-to-one cases to eliminate issues surrounding the rezoning. The main issue with the parents was the transportation and the school board has the solution to increase in buses available for the students. Overall, the rezoning plan should be effective for all stakeholders and learning experience for the students as they enter the real
Recently in Texas, there is some controversy about the cost of tuition when trying to pursue a higher education. While pursuing a college degree can be beneficial, it can also be difficult for a family to pay for at least one child to go to college. The tuition of college over the past years have dramatically increased to where a family sending one child to college can put them into some serious debt. Students and parents believe that having a fixed tuition rate will help and ease the pain of paying tuition. The University of Texas System Regents are working on having a four year fixed tuition plan that will help families pay for their children to get a higher education.

Chad Conger Mrs. Yoakum English105 17 October 2012 Summary In the article “Working Life” the author, Nisha Ramachandran, explains how working during your time in college can affect your life in many ways, but ultimately being a student should come first. Ramachandran opens up by elaborating on the average cost of college and how it can be overwhelming at times.

Its fall again! Time hit the books - if you can afford them. The price of college textbooks increased 186 percent an average of about six percent per year between 1986 and 2004 (Koch 1).

There are very few computers for to many students. I believe that the solution to this problem will be to build more computer labs. In this way we can be able to do all assignment and school projects. Each semester, students have to deal with the fact to get textbooks for the classes that must be taken. This has become a real issue for many students because as the school library the textbooks are been sell at a very high cost that we cannot afford.
Many think immigration should be stopped and many think that it should be welcomed. “More than one million immigrants enter the United States, legally and illegally, each year” (Masc, 2010 p.1). The debate has been going on for years, and most are concerned about the American economy. While we believe the migrants are helping to boost our economy, many worry that immigrants are taking jobs that would otherwise be available to unemployed American citizens. Many push for stricter laws at the border but according to Rep. Tom Tancredo “the reason we do not have secure borders is because of an insatiable demand for cheap labor, we have the ability to secure the boarders, we choose not to” (as cited in Katal p.
