Florida College Enrollment Down

October 11, 2006

  The Palm Beach Post reports that Florida’s community colleges are teaching 4,300 fewer students this fall, part of a three-year downward trend. The loss of students is being blamed on two years of hurricanes, a good economy, and competition from a growing number of Internet and for-profit schools.
