CCSF Students, Faculty, and Supporters Demand a Voice

Students at CCSF March, Rally & Occupy Admin Building To Stop Cutbacks & Privatization
City College of San Francisco currently faces a loss of accreditation with a March 15th deadline looming to address demands of the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges. The ACCJC has threatened public colleges and schools but refuses to close down private charters and online operations where the rate of graduation is very low and billions of dollars are being made by the private operators. The ACCJR is also run by these same privatizers.

On February 21st, over 100 CCSF students, faculty, and supporters marched, rallied, and occupied to demand an end to the cutbacks and the privatization of the college. They called for accountability by chancellor Dr. Thelma Scott-Skillman who refused to show up. The administration building was occupied overnight by about three dozen students while waiting for the Chancellor to appear. The Chancellor did not show by morning, but when she agreed through intermediaries to meet with students on February 25th and explore their demands including regular open town hall meetings, protesters dispersed of their own accord without incident or arrest.
