Public education has been under attack for many years. The forms of attack include inadequate funding, privatization, corporatization, and hostility towards teacher and staff unions. Many students and public school employees have been harmed
One college that has been relentlessly assaulted is City College of San Francisco (CCSF). It is a very popular public institution as reflected in the fact that over 80% of voters approved a parcel tax to help fund CCSF in the November 2016 election.
In 2008, more than 100,000 students were enrolled in classes at CCSF. Today, its enrollment is less than 60,000 and the number of its scheduled classes has been significantly reduced. Why has there been an assault on this working class public institution? Who is behind it? What can be done to restore CCSF? This panel will discuss and provide answers to these questions with help from the audience.
