Senate Bill 173 (Liu) limiting adult education stalls in committee

Good news for adult education! Senate Bill 173 (Liu) was stopped earlier today in the Assembly Higher Education Committee hearing.
Senator Liu agreed to make this a two-year bill after most committee members indicated in the hearing that they do not support the bill. As a result, SB 173 will fail to meet a key legislative deadline, and should not move further this year, though Liu plans to try again next year.
An overwhelming majority of committee members shared concerns regarding the elimination of state support for certain adult education program areas. Some also objected to the bill’s attempt to shift our K-12 and community college systems to new accountability metrics and performance-based funding models.
This was a coalition effort with CFT and many other groups—a big thank you to the many #CCSF faculty who contributed to this legislative success.
