Algonquin College decides not to cut their horticulture technician program

I meant to post something about this last week, but what with the earthquake and all I didn’t get around to it.

You may recall I posted something a couple of weeks ago talking about Algonquin College considering cutting their horticulture technician program. Well, I heard from my friend last week that the college has decided not to cut their program after all. According to a story in the Ottawa Citizen, there was enough protest from industry and other sources that the program has been saved. Instead they’re going to re-vamp it, and other programs that had been identified to be cut, and take advantage of opportunities to partner with companies in the field.

I’m glad to hear this, not only because my friend isn’t going to be out of a job, but also because they’ve remembered that sometimes reducing the bottom line isn’t the ultimate goal.
