As we know, City College of San Francisco, a community college, is in a difficult situation, facing the same budget cuts all schools can expect if Prop 30 doesn't pass, as well as facing possible loss of accreditation.
Both these challenges affect thousands, both directly and indirectly.
And both these challenges affect Adult Education because in San Francisco, Adult Education is run by City College as their Non-Credit Program.
City College is the largest college in California. What happens in these next few months, concerning both the accreditation issue and further budget cuts, is of great importance to all Californians.
It is similar to when the Adult Education program in Los Angeles, the largest such program in California, faced complete devastation.
What happens to these large programs matters to all of us and sets a tone for how things may be handled in places that are smaller in number but no less important on a human scale.
