March for Public Education
Friday, March 11, Meet at 12pm
Starts at the annual CFT Convention (Hyatt Regency Hotel, Market St. @ Spear)

  • Stand up for CCSF and the public education SF deserves!
  • Faculty, community & students united for quality public education!
  • Educators’ working conditions = student learning conditions!
  • Fund education, not administration!
  • Put money into San Francisco’s classrooms!

For more than a year, counselors, librarians, and teachers at City College of San Francisco have been struggling to negotiate a contract that maintains quality by investing in the classroom and the educators who do the work. But instead of investing in our student¹s future, the administration is seeking to cut 26% of classes, while sitting on massive reserves.
