I'm having a hard time putting the news about Robin Williams in perspective. I had a tape of Robin William's stand up when I was young. I wore it out. His comedic roles in his early films never seemed to capture his comic energy, but I saw every film, hoping that someone would create a vehicle to bring his greatness to the big screen.

In 2011, Burlington College moved from the 16,000 square foot Colodny building up North Avenue to its current location. Within the 90,000 square feet of the former Burlington Catholic Diocese headquarters, the College is bustling with students and community events, and working to meet the vision set forth during the purchase of the new campus and subsequent change in leadership. As is typical of any evolving business, the College’s growth is not without bumps in the road.
Following its recent review of Burlington College, the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC), which accredits educational institutions in New England, placed the College on probation status for up to two years for failure to meet one of eleven standards. The standard of concern is based on financial resources, and does not relate to the College’s academic strengths. Burlington College remains accredited during the period of probation.

Recently, US Sen. Bernie Sanders announced that he intends to introduce federal legislation addressing many of the barriers low-income and first-generation students face as they consider college. This would make the opportunity to attend college a reality for these students – an opportunity we are already providing here in Vermont.
On the same day, across town, at Vermont Student Assistance Corp. (VSAC), Governor Shumlin spoke about dual enrollment and early college programs expanded in Vermont in 2013. Dual enrollment programs allow high school students to take college-level classes at no cost, while the new Early College program starting this fall allows high school seniors to complete their final year of high school on a college campus, taking a full course load, earning both college and high school credits at no cost.

There are many challenges that students face on their way to earning their college degrees. Getting into the college of your choice is as competitive as ever. The price of tuition is skyrocketing. Sometimes hurdles arise before you’ve even applied – lack of motivation, low confidence – the list goes on.
Fortunately, programs like Dual Enrollment and Advanced Placement can help to alleviate the burden some of these problems by allowing students to earn college credit while they are still in high school. The savings of earning credit early through these programs can benefit both students and the public, so much in fact, that the total cost of college education could be lowered by up to 12.5%, a significant drop for students and taxpayers alike.
