Judge Hears Opening Arguments in CCSF Accreditation Trial

Community College of San Francisco hangs in limbo fighting to keep its doors open. A San Francisco Superior Court judge heard opening arguments in a trial that could determine the college’s accreditation status. Last summer the city sued the ACCJC, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, alleging unfair treatment in its review of City College. The commission was due to strip City College of its accreditation this summer but changed course under public pressure and allowed the college to apply for restoration status. The city wants the court to void the commission’s 2013 disaccreditation ruling all together. Nick St. Charles filed this report.
