As many of you know I have been teaching at CCSF (SF City College) for more than 20 years....it is the largest Community College in the nation serving over 85,000 students. Contrary to local newspaper reports our College is open for Classes ....please sign up we are accredited thru July 2014!! And of course sign up for Tai Chi Classes....they are free.....and one of those classes that the Accreditation Board is trying to eliminate........they think our School's mission should be to teach basic skills and get people to college not serve the community. Seems Good Health is not part of education. CCSF needs your support, and so does Tai Chi!
Currently, the City Attorney and the AFT Local have sued the Board of Accreditation for irregularities during their inspection, actually violating their own process guidelines. And I have no idea what they were reviewing to say the College did not make any progress....the teachers have been working hard to meet the guidelines.
CCSF, is one of the only Colleges to have both free and credit classes for Tai Chi.....a full 3 units!
Art.....whether it be martial or otherwise, is always under attack in our society.......it is seen as being unnecessary to daily life and to be unproductive.....yet for any society to be consider advance....it is Art that shows the way.......
So take classes..............and get yourself a CCSF shirt to show support.......if you are not in SF......feel free to send notes of support to the US Department of Education!
OK....that's my political statement for today.....cya all.....
