Yakima Valley Community College Expands Education Program

YAKIMA, Wash -- It is estimated that the U.S. will need an additional 200,000 teachers in coming years. At Yakima Valley Community College they are expanding their Education program to help meet that demand.

YVCC has added two full sections to their education program -- going from 30 students to 90.

"We will do whatever we can to meet the demand.", said Dr. Linda Kaminski. "If we have more students than we can accept we will try to offer more sections to accommodate them."

Additionally, the early childhood minor was replaced by english as a second language to meet the needs of the local community.
