Filed under Columns, Letters to the Editor, Opinions

I am pleased to see the article, Students cause Overflow in Classes, in the March 2 issue of The Skyline View. I’d like to offer an assessment from a faculty member’s point of view. First, I do agree with the author of the article, that this is an issue that has consistently plagued us over the past years. I’ve taught...

Letters to the Editor: Compassion for Immigrants

Our newfound compassion for the plight of immigrants: The recent public outpouring of support for immigrants is truly heartwarming. Yet I can’t help but ask myself: why now? Where was this compassion two months ago? Four months ago? One year ago? Four years ago? Or since the outbreak of the turmoil that now plagues North...

Dear Skyline View - I appreciate your very clear concern about the coming election(s). And, you've inspired me to add my two cents. Call it an open letter to fellow students...........

I was shocked after reading your above subject article published on September 15, 2016 and the associated photo and cartoon caricature that accompanied the article! Your reference that our offering classes geared towards women because our gender is stupid, then your photo and cartoon in itself just insulted all women. I do...

I am writing in response to the editorial entitled “Skyline Offers Course Just for Women*”, as well as the photo accompanying the piece and the “Artistic License” cartoon on the same subject.

More weapons!?!? Really?!?! We will be repeating another blunder in a part of the world where America has become inextricably associated with sowing instability, death and destruction. Let’s do the exact opposite. Take out what weapons are already there. Place an arms embargo on the country until the feuding parties run...

Editor: I am a huge believer of California's community college system. Though I cannot really afford adding it to my property taxes, l always vote for any measure that will benefit the SMCCCD.
