    Letters to the editor — Laney should not be up for sale

    This is a topic that should not even be up for discussion. There are a countless number of individuals who depend on Laney to further their academic endeavors.
    Community Colleges were made for students who couldn’t initially afford to attend a 4 year college. Students would attend a CC to receive an Associate’s Degree then transfer to a 4 year college for a Bachelor’s Degree. 
    Laney has been standing solid since 1953 and is the eldest of the Peralta Community Colleges.
    It’s in a beneficial location for most of its students to get to since it’s right by Bart and not too far from Downtown Oakland. I feel
    Laney should be kept just how it is.
    D’Ondrae Fuller

    About the Contributor
    In the fall of 2019, The Laney Tower rebranded as The Citizen and launched a new website. These stories were ported over from the old Laney Tower website, but byline metadata was lost in the port. However, many of these stories credit the authors in the text of the story. Some articles may also suffer from formatting issues. Future archival efforts may fix these issues.
