Technical difficulties have prevented we at Dissent from covering much lately but it hasn't stopped the Register who sent a reporter and photographer to document the district's recent celebrations of its 50th.  See highlights below and click the link for more photos of cupcakes and sparkling cider.

South Orange County Community College District celebrates its golden anniversary

excerpt:
The South Orange County Community College District celebrated its 50th anniversary at the Board of Trustees meeting, Feb. 27, at Saddleback College.
The district – which oversees Saddleback and Irvine Valley Colleges – set up a presentation at the meeting that included historical photos, a timeline, and accomplishments by the district since 1967.
In the article, much was made about "returns on investments":
• Students receive a 17.4 percent return on their investment of time and money.
• Taxpayers receive a 15.3 percent return on their investment, well above the four percent normally received from government organizations.
• SOCCCD provides a return investment of $4.78 per dollar appropriated.
