The Accrediting Commission for Community & Junior Colleges, which accredits community colleges in California, on Friday barred dozens of people -- including reporters and supporters of City College of San Francisco -- from attending what was theoretically an open meeting, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. The day before, the commission had voted (behind closed doors) on whether to remove accreditation from City College of San Francisco. But even though that decision had been made, many supporters of the college wanted to talk about the issue. The commission did not respond to requests for information about why it wasn't letting people into the meeting. The commission did send a statement to reporters Friday indicating that a decision had been made about the college, but that no announcement would be mean until early July "to ensure orderly notifications to various stakeholders."
