Corporatization of Our Community Colleges And Their Future
With Rick Baum, John Holmes, Madeline Muller, George Wright
The growing downsizing of San Francisco Community College by the Rocha administration is not unique. Through privatization plans of online education, which is getting hundreds of millions to replace professors, and the Student Success Taskforce, California’s community colleges face a frontal attack.
The recent vote of no confidence by California faculty of the Community College Chancellor is a sign that there is a growing anger about the corporatization of our community colleges. This forum will hear about the history of privatization, efforts to fight back, and how to defend our public community colleges.
