On Tuesday, students, and community supporters delivered over two-thousand petitions in the shape of bricks, symbolizing that now is the time to rebuild CCSF, to Susan Lamb, Vice Chancellor in charge of making decisions to cancel classes at our college.
We began at Ram Plaza and then marched to Cloud Hall chanting “we want knowledge, build our college!” Outside of Could Hall we engaged VC Lamb in an impromptu Q&A. Many students spoke passionately about their educational goals and the increasing roadblocks to getting classes at CCSF.
AFT 2121 President Tim Killikelly and others argued that class closures made little sense in the context of stabilization funding approved by the State legislature. Despite stabilization funds VC Lamb said CCSF must cancel classes to show the accreditors and others that the College is using resources “efficiently.”
Now is the time to stabilize and grow our classes. We demand that CCSF administration focus on building our college and halt the downsizing of programs!
