This is SO WRONG...
"Four hundred thousand homeless community college students in California is totally unacceptable," Berman said. I can't agree more, however,
why can't the classrooms be used for sleeping quarters overnight...vacated before daily classes start.
This is SO WRONG.

MEMBERONE,
Because classrooms are already sleeping quarters for those who can't stay awake during day and evening classes.

First of all loosen up a bit.
Secondly, setting up cots in the gym would be a much better idea than using classrooms where desks etc would have to be removed and replaced and rooms cleaned before classes. The gyms also have large bathroom facilities with showers. Much more hygienic.
