AFT 2121 commends Chancellor Tyler and CCSF administration as well as State Chancellor Harris for being clear and decisive in telling the ACCJC, college community, and the public that “candidacy” is not an option for CCSF. Both have come out strongly opposed to this latest damaging proposal from the Commission.
The ACCJC has acted unlawfully, unfairly, and unethically towards CCSF for at least two years now. It has treated numerous other California community colleges similarly. This latest proposal that CCSF should apply for “candidacy”—basically start over in the ACCJC “process” to become an accredited college—is perhaps the most disturbing of all. But it does seem consistent with ACCJC’s irrational apparent desire to shut down a college with excellent and affordable education that hundreds of thousands in the Bay Area rely on.
