To the editor: The new administration’s economic recovery plan includes a proposal for free community college. This would be a major gain for people seeking new careers, better jobs or affordable higher education and benefit employers needing qualified workers for high-demand occupations.

However, our region has not had a local community college since Williamsport Area Community College closed more than 30 years ago.

“ tech” should be “teach”.


Community colleges are a great concept. A local CC would definitely better the community...oh wait, they tech that liberal “”critical thinking”. Maybe better not make the kids too informed.
