San Francisco residents can attend the City College of San Francisco for free starting in the fall semester, under a deal announced Monday by Mayor Ed Lee. The city will spend $5.4 million to support free tuition and to provide books for low-income students. The school's enrollment took a dive after 2012 when its accreditation was in serious jeopardy and the school had to defend itself against threats of closure. City College's accreditation was renewed for seven years. We'll talk about the developments with interim chancellor Susan Lamb.
