With nearly 100,000 students, City College of San Francisco (CCSF) is one of largest community colleges in the nation. But CCSF is facing the threat of losing its accreditation, at the same time as it copes with major budget cuts. All of this makes the upcoming election of members to the college’s Board of Trustees the most important in years. EdSource executive director Louis Freedberg, along with San Francisco Chronicle higher education reporter Nanette Asimov, helped moderate a candidates’ forum organized by New America Media. The master of ceremonies was veteran journalism Emil Guillermo. This video, produced by New America Media, focuses on the highlights of the 90 minute forum.

We need your help ...

Unlike many news outlets, EdSource does not secure its content behind a paywall. We believe that informing the largest possible audience about what is working in education — and what isn't — is far more important.

Once a year, however, we ask our readers to contribute as generously as they can so that we can do justice to reporting on a topic as vast and complex as California's education system — from early education to postsecondary success.

Thanks to support from several philanthropic foundations, EdSource is participating in NewsMatch. As a result, your tax-deductible gift to EdSource will be worth three times as much to us — and allow us to do more hard hitting, high-impact reporting that makes a difference. Don’t wait. Please make a contribution now.
