BURLINGAME (KCBS)— About 75 supporters of San Francisco City College showed up at the Burlingame Marriot on Wednesday where the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges are for a three-day meeting.
Dozens protested on the sidewalk, not far from the meeting rooms, concerned about the future of SF City College. They chanted about the struggles higher public education is currently facing.
San Francisco City College was given a sanction of show cause last year, the most severe sanction given without actually losing accreditation. At the time, an action plan addressed financial and management problems.
“What we’re saying is ‘restore our college’ so we can provide the quality education that we are known to,” said Alan Fisher – an ESL teacher.
Larry Kamer with City College said local administrators will address the Commission on Thursday.
