Community Forum at Manilatown

City College (CCSF) is a great community college. The NY Times says it’s number 11 in the nation. It helps students get their GEDs, prepares them to transfer to 4-year colleges, and graduates students in food preparation, nursing, radiology, fire-fighting, and other fields. Thousands of immigrants learn English, older adults take special courses, and unemployed workers learn new skills.

City College is under threat, not of closing, but of loosing its accreditation unless it bows to the private Accrediting Commission and the state-wide Community College Chancellor’s Office, and narrows its mission down to full-time students planning to transfer or get vocational certificates. No low-income students working while studying, no Lifelong Learning programs for older adults, no Diversity programs specializing in communities of color, no programs for people with disabilities - - in short, no community in Community Colleges. They want to do this to ALL California Community Colleges, starting with San Francisco because it’s the biggest and most successful. NO WAY! SAVE CITY COLLEGE!
