SPECIAL INFORMATION FOR MOSCO

Two years of community college free for responsible students in MOSCO

The President unveiled a new proposal: Make two years of community college free for responsible students across America.

In our growing global economy, Americans need to have more knowledge and more skills to compete -- by 2020, an estimated 35 percent of job openings will require at least a bachelor's degree, and 30 percent will require some college or an associate's degree. Students should be able to get the knowledge and the skills they need without taking on decades' worth of student debt.


The numbers:

If all 50 states choose to implement the President's new community college proposal, it could:

  • Save a full-time community college student $3,800 in tuition per year on average
  • Benefit roughly 9 million students each year

Under President Obama's new proposal, students would be able to earn the first half of a bachelor's degree, or earn the technical skills needed in the workforce -- all at no cost to them.


The requirements:

  • What students have to do: Students must attend community college at least half-time, maintain a 2.5 GPA, and make steady progress toward completing their program.
  • What community colleges have to do: Community colleges will be expected to offer programs that are either 1) academic programs that fully transfer credits to local public four-year colleges and universities, or 2) occupational training programs with high graduation rates and lead to in-demand degrees and certificates. Community colleges must also adopt promising and evidence-based institutional reforms to improve student outcomes.
  • What the federal government has to do: Federal funding will cover three-quarters of the average cost of community college. Participating states will be expected to contribute the remaining funds necessary to eliminate the tuition for eligible students.

Expanding technical training programs:

President Obama also proposed the new American Technical Training Fund, which will expand innovative, high-quality technical training programs across the country. Specifically, the fund will award programs that:

  • Have strong employer partnerships and include work-based learning opportunities
  • Provide accelerated training
  • Accommodate part-time work

6 Tips for Managing Portion Size

Eating healthy is about enjoying your food while also managing portion size. Most people eat and drink more than their bodies need especially when they are served larger portions. So, choosing smaller portions to begin with is important for maintaining your overall health and well-being.

Here are some tips to help you manage your portion size:

  1. Measure out 1 cup, 1/2 cup, or 1 ounce of some different foods onto the bowls, glasses, cups, and plates you usually use to see what these portion sizes look like on them.
    Remember:
    • 1/2 cup = light bulb
    • 1 cup = baseball
    • 1 oz. or 2 tbsp. = golf ball
    • 3 oz. of chicken or meat = deck of cards
    • 3 oz. fish = checkbook
  2. Eat you meals on a smaller plate. The smaller your plate, the smaller your portion.
  3. Finished your plate but think you’re still hungry? Wait 10 minutes before going back for seconds. You might not want them after all. If you do go back for seconds, aim for the same balance you had with your first serving and start with veggies.
  4. When ordering at a restaurant, ask for a take-home container as soon as your meal comes. Put half of the meal in the take-home container so you’re sure to let your stomach—instead of your eyes—be your guide. Or share the meal with a dining companion. Many restaurants offer a smaller or “appetizer size” of entrees, so when a smaller portion is available, go for it!
  5. Buy or portion out treats and snacks in small, single-serving bags or packages.
  6. Check out the food label for serving size info

Try This: Small changes like these can make a big difference. Commit to making at least one change to reduce your portion sizes this week.
