City College of San Francisco's future on trial


Rally before CCSF trialA trial in the San Francisco Superior Court to determine the future of the City College of San Francisco has adjourned until Dec. 9, after five days of sometimes dramatic testimony. The trial centers on whether the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges has acted properly over the course of a two-year process that threatens to shut down the college. "The basic issue in this case is fairness," says Tim Killikelly, president of AFT Local 2121, which represents faculty at the college. "Is it fair to close down a college of 80,000 people, the educational quality of which is not in question? We hope the trial will help create a fair and transparent accreditation process for City College of San Francisco and all the community colleges in California." AFT 2121's website has posted detailed recaps of the trial to date, which will resume with closing arguments.
