In Response to the Detroit News Articles
Over half the KVCC student population is receiving aid and the college receives approximately $21 million for these students. Part-time faculty teach 60% or more of the classes these students register for, accounting for $1 million in part-time salaries per year. Who is receiving the other $20 million?...those who have NO student contact and provide NO educational benefits to our students
Considering the majority of part-time faculty make less than minimum wage per hour for the work they do, the majority of the grant monies mentioned by the Detroit News DOES NOT go toward the classroom education of these students.
