News on City College of San Francisco April 8 2014

“Judge Dismisses a Lawsuit Against City College of San Francisco’s Accreditor”

“Judge Curtis Karnow of the San Francisco Superior Court has dismissed one of the lawsuits asserting that the City College of San Francisco’s accreditor acted improperly when it last year moved to revoke the institution’s accreditation.

“The lawsuit was filed by the Save CCSF Coalition, a group made up of faculty and staff members as well as students, against the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges. Judge Karnow granted the commission’s motion to dismiss the suit, saying he disagreed with the suit’s assertion that the commission had acted unfairly or illegally.”

“Similar lawsuits against the commission are still pending, including one by San Francisco’s city attorney. Judge Karnow ruled in January that the college could not be stripped of its accreditation until a trial was completed. That trial is expected to begin in October.”

I sincerely hope there is a real plan in place to help those 80,000 students who are affected by this ongoing issue, because lawsuits are not plans.
