Adult students in San Jose are saddened to learn that their educational opportunities will likely vanish by the end of this school year.

The Metropolitan Education District says it'll stop offering all recreational and leisure classes ranging from Spanish to watercolor. It will cut 100 teachers - about 30 percent of its work force.

For now, the district plans to continue with basic education classes like math and reading. That's if voters approve Governor Brown's proposed extension of temporary taxes.
