The Community College Association
CCA members kept up the momentum in calling for the replacement of the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges during the third stop of a listening tour by commissioners. Wearing “United for Students” tee shirts, faculty turned out in force at the Rancho Santiago Community College District office to confront members of the Accrediting Commission over its coercive tactics and to endorse the recommendations of the Chancellors Task Force on Accreditation. Faculty spoke out about the commission’s lack of collegiality and transparency, unclear and arbitrary decision-making, bullying, and the use of fear that has created distrust on campuses. Read what College of the Sequoias Teachers Association President-elect Paul Tidwell had to say when he traveled to Sacramento, Bakersfield and Santa Ana to greet the commissioners.
