The Accreditor That Revoked CCSF’s Accreditation Now Faces Revocation of its Own Accreditation!

Today the U.S. Department of Education released a letter to the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), the agency that revoked accreditation for San Francisco City College.  The letter came in response to a complaint filed by the California Federation of Teachers.  The short version:  ACCJC now has a year to “take immediate steps to correct the areas of noncompliance identified in this letter.”   No doubt community college faculty throughout California are smiling at the delicious irony.

Here is the full text of the letter:

WASC-jr decision letter 081313 FINAL
