Oppose Student "Success" Task Force Recommendations

The recommendations of the Student "Success" Task Force would significantly change the mission of California's 112 community colleges. They would centralize control of community colleges in a large, lumbering bureaucracy. They would impose assessments developed by for-profit corporations in lieu of locally produced, targeted assessments. The would limit the definition of success, ignoring the many ways that community colleges contribute to the success of a very diverse population, threatening ESL, older adults and other "non-degree" programs. They would limit the amount of time and number of classes students could take at a community college, thereby rationing access and limiting opportunities for life-long learning. These recommendations are not well thought out, are often contradictory and will lead to student failure rather than success. We oppose the recommendations of the Student Success Task Force. Keep community colleges in the community!
