Commission Votes to End CCSF AccreditationDownload audio (MP3)
The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges has voted to terminate accreditation for City College of San Francisco. The school could close by summer of next year, and is only the second public community college in the state to ever lose accreditation. The college has been scrambling to make organizational changes since the Commission put the school under the most severe sanction last year. City College is one of the largest community colleges in the country with 85,000 students. We discuss the decision and what it will mean for the school and its students.
