Hundreds rallied in support of City College, which is threatened with losing its accreditation, despite its exemplary record of educational quality. The city attorney has sued both ACCJC accreditation board over its well-documented conflicts of interest and political bias, and the the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges for lack of oversight. However, Mayor Ed Lee has largely remained silent. CCSF brings the city $300 million in annual revenue while serving a student population that is 70% people of color.

“PRIVATIZATION = DEATH.” Scott Tsuchitani (your author) had the honor of serving as the Conspiracy’s guest artist for the second time (see first time here), and submitted three designs, shown here and below.
