It is important to know what is happening at CCSF because CCSF is essentially the sole provider of Adult Education in San Francisco. You can see the plan for the San Francisco Regional Consortium here.
San Francisco and San Diego are often presented as models for how a Community College can (or should) deliver Adult Education.
What people often forget is that the Community College system, just like the K12 Adult School system and every other branch of public education, is undergoing reform. Models being held up as examples may in fact no longer exist - or won't exist for much longer. It is good to remember our role in this re-forming process. We have both the right and the responsibility to assess the changes as they are proposed and to speak up about what we think will best serve us as a people.
CCSF has credit ESL and non-credit ESL. The non-credit is what we generally call "Adult Education."
The CCSF Administration is for splitting it.
The CCSF Department Chairs are against splitting the ESL department.
I will provide more information as I get it. For now, here is a leaflet against splitting the department.
