What is Happening to
City College of San Francisco?

Public institutions and unionized workers are under attack. Anti-union neo-liberals have been advocating their privatization and transformation to better serve the needs of business to enable the wealthy to accumulate more wealth.
A leading example of a public college being targeted is California's largest community college, City College of San Francisco (CCSF), . In addition to facing the current attacks on public education, the CCSF community has been brought under tremendous pressure by an out of control and abusive private accrediting agency that is threatening the college with closure. This agency's demands for "reform" are being carried out by a state imposed special trustee who has been granted dictatorial power to run the college. The changes enacted represent an assault on both the many working class and disadvantaged students the college serves, and its faculty and staff. CCSF has been significantly downsized.
Rick Baum, a part-time political science instructor at CCSF for over fifteen years, has been active in the fight to save the college. He will provide an overview of what has been happening and answer questions.
