ASSEMBLY | 18TH DISTRICT | EDUCATION | The Sacramento Bee’s Dan Walters says the City College of San Francisco is using friends in high places to get out from under threat of losing its accreditation. The City’s state senator has a bill hoping to inject additional state funding for the struggling community college, and across the bay, Oakland Assemblymember Rob Bonta introduced a bill that takes aim at the heavy laying pressure on CCSF—the accreditation commission, itself.

Bonta’s bill, AB 1942, allows the state’s 112 community colleges the opportunity to seek out other accreditation entities other than the Accrediting Commission of Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), the only such body currently available for two-year colleges.
