College may end for-credit ceramics classes
Question of the Day
ROYAL OAK, Mich. (AP) - Concerns that Oakland Community College might end for-credit classes in ceramics prompted actions of protest by potters.
The Detroit Free Press reports (http://on.freep.com/1mt0jRz ) some clay artists at the school’s Royal Oak campus wore buttons this week proclaiming “The Arts are a Necessity - Not a Luxury!” At Tuesday’s meeting of the school’s board, students expressed concerns.
The newspaper says the possible change is part of a broader community college push to cut programs that may be beloved but aren’t training people for jobs.
Sharon Miller, vice chancellor for external affairs, says students pay $76 per credit hour for ceramics. If that were offered as a continuing education class, she says, the school might be able to charge more and recover more of the cost of offering classes.
