Stop The Cuts! Hundreds of CCSF Students & Faculty Protest 300 Class Cuts AT BOT Meet-SF & CA Demos Lead The Attack On Public Education
Hundreds of faculty and students rallied, protested and spoke out at a SF City College Board of Trustees meeting on December 12, 2019.

Chancellor Mark Rocha had announced the 300 class cuts and then sent a letter to SF Mayor London Breed and the Board Of Supervisors arguing against a $2.7 million funding appropriation to stop the cuts.

Rocha said the cuts were “part of a long-planned restructuring of the academic program to prioritize the graduation of students of color” in preparation for the state’s new method of funding community colleges. Rocha was backed up by the Board of Trustees who are part of the City's Democratic party power structure and have supported the massive corporatization, privatization, and downsizing of the community college.

Additionally, San Francisco and California politicians in the legislature have passed the "Student-Centered Funding Formula” that punishes working-class students that cannot graduate in two years.

This legislation has been pushed by the reactionary rightwing Lumina Foundation and ALEC nationally and the California Democratic Party has put this into legislation which will destroy all community colleges in California.

Virtually the entire Older Adults Program as well would also be destroyed by the cuts putting many seniors who need these programs in health danger.

California Democrats with a $21 billion surplus and San Francisco with many billionaires and a $12 billion dollar budget are at the same time intent on San Francisco Community College.
Rocha whose wife is a developer is also moving to sell-off campuses of the college for speculators and developers and are pushing an $800 million bond measure that would be a slush fund for the corrupt administrators and billionaires.
