SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) — Students at two City College of San Francisco campuses walked out of classes Thursday to protest a broad array of budget cuts as the school faces the possible loss of its accreditation.
At the Ocean Avenue campus, a student leader roused fellow classmates to walk out to the cheers of the student body. They then headed onto BART trains to go to a larger rally at the college’s Mission Campus, followed by a march to City Hall.
“A whole bunch of classes are being cut and a whole bunch of teachers are being laid off. 100,000 students were here five years ago now there are 85,000, which means 15,000 students have been affected,” said Jorge Romano, a worried student.
