A California judge's "tentative" ruling on Friday said City College of San Francisco did not receive a fair hearing from its accreditor, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, according to KQED News. A final decision is still pending in the lawsuit, which San Francisco's city attorney filed in a local court. The suit seeks to block the comission's decision 16 months ago to revoke City College's accreditation.
City College and its supporters appear to be gaining the upper hand in the dispute. Also last week the commission granted the college a two-year extension. The college, which enrolls roughly 80,000 students, has been accused of a range of problems, including financial mismanagement. The commission itself has also come under fire, including for apparent conflicts of interest.
