He with the support of the CCSF Board of Trustees had also sent a letter to Mayor London Breed and the Board of Supervisors saying that the cutbacks were part of the restructuring into a Jr. College and no bridge funding was needed to restore the 300 classes that have been eliminated. These included all the classes for the elderly.

Faculty also talked about corporatization of all community colleges by the Governor and legislature including more online classes which Rocha has supported.

These "reforms". have also been pushed by ALEC and Lumina and past governor Brown, the present Governor Newsom, and the State legislature have passed legislation to implement this privatization agenda.
