Thousands of students, faculty and supporters of City College Of San Francisco marched and rallied on July 9, 2013 against the open revocation of accreditation by the privately run Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC) run by privatization supporter Chair Barbara Beno. Her husband in a conflict of interest was involved in an investigation of CCSF and this privately operated organization is funded by CCSF and other public institutions without any governmental oversight. The march on Market street and rally at the US Department of Education was called by AFT 2121 and the Save City College coaliton. The pro privatization chancellor of the Community Colleges of California Brice W. Harris who was put in this position by labor supported Governor Jerry Brown has dismissed the elected CCSF board of trustees and imposed a special trustee Robert Agrella with full powers to take over the operations of the college with no oversight by any local bodies. This take-over of the college was endorsed by SF Democratic Party mayor Ed Lee who was booed several times at the rally held by City College supporters. Agrella has a record of union busting and outsourcing of community colleges and representing the corporateers who want to privatize public education. The SEIU 1021 San Francisco City College Chapter boycotted the march and rally and its chapter president has attacked protesters and activists fighting privatization.
