What you didn’t read in most of these articles:
This 5-year debacle should never have happened. It was never about accreditation standards, but rather, it was a political battle involving many players in addition to the ACCJC:  real estate developers aiming to downsize our college and take over prime public land; the California Business Roundtable aiming to turn the community colleges into corporate workforce training centers; the for-profit college industry; the student loan industry; and not least of all, Mayor Ed Lee and the state Chancellor’s Office.

Although president Barbara Beno is gone as well as most of the commissioners who made the original decision to terminate CCSF’s accreditation, the ACCJC has not truly changed course. They are not taking responsibility for their mistakes and the grave harm they have done to hundreds of thousands of students statewide. The ACCJC remains a commission that is not widely accepted. We still need to testify before NACIQI.
