City College of San Francisco Battle
Rising concerns about the possible closure next year of City College of San Francisco erupted in a protest this week by supporters of the embattled school. The Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges earlier this month said the college did not meet enough of the fourteen recommendations to maintain its accreditation. Without that license to operate, the college -- one of the largest in the country -- could receive no public funds and would have to close. This week state officials stripped the elected Board of Trustees of its authority and appointed a "special trustee" with unilateral powers.
