Education Fund a partner in new California online college

The Education Fund is partnering with California Community Colleges to develop the first credential pathway for Governor Brown’s proposed online college. This project will help our California members achieve career advancement and wage gain in the field of medical coding. This pathway will serve working adults who want additional skills but haven’t been able to access higher education.

“The new online college will allow us to create and deliver an affordable and accessible high-quality education that is ideally suited to our working learners,” said Education Fund Executive Director Rebecca Hanson.

The announcement was widely covered in local and regional media including California Economy Reporting, KRON (Independent TV – San Francisco), and EdSource. Read the full press release from California Community Colleges.
