Phil TingCalifornia Assemblymember Phil Ting’s excellent editorial on new legislation he introduced to rein in the abuses of the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), which voted to revoke the accreditation of City College of San Francisco while giving Heald College a passing grade:

“California needs AB 1397 because the status quo is indefensible. The bill requires the commission to make its meetings public and to stop taking public comment after voting on accreditation. It establishes a strict conflict-of-interest policy to ensure independence and objectivity. Finally, it establishes a right for colleges to appeal sanctions.”
