MCC’s ludicrous projections
To the Editor:
McHenry County College says it needs $280 million because it will grow 3 percent a year for the next 40 years. In response to a FOIA request, it provided two pieces of evidence to support this: 1. population in McHenry County grew 3.6 percent a year since 1990; 2. enrollment grew 4 percent a year over the past 10 years.
The first statement is false. Population grew 2.6 percent a year from 1990 through 2010, and only 1.7 percent a year from 2000 through 2010.
