CFT and AFT local 2121 oppose ACCJC
decision to deny accreditation to CCS |
Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) on July
3rd ordered the closure of California's largest college and a beacon of
higher education in America’s most progressive and prosperous cities.
The City College of San Francisco (CCSF) serves 90,000 students and has
produced the thousands of thousands of police officers, firefighters,
nurses and teachers who protect and serve our communities. This
outrageous, ill-conceived and unprecedented decision will have a harsh,
immediate and irreversible impact on the academic future of current
students and will undermine the achievements of College alumni.
Lauie Ordin urges all union members and concerned community activists to
write letter to the local papers such as the Chronicle and the Marin IJ
protesting the unprecidated and destructive actions of the ACCJC.
