CCSF worried that counselors may be cut

Community College of San Francisco has cut several hundred classes from its fall and spring semesters including its entire summer program, and the teachers’ union is worried the counselors might be next.

At a town hall meeting regarding how state budget cuts affect classrooms, Gus Goldstein, president of the San Francisco Community College District Federation of Teachers, talked about how the school used general funds to pay for counselors this year since student service funds were cut severely.

Goldstein talked about how many of their students are the first to attend college and severely need guidance counselors to help them.
She said this year they had to cut two positions, but feels they are the most vulnerable to the next round of slashes because their funding is not secure.

The college tried to salvage some of its classes by holding a garage sale, but she said “apparently that didn’t work” because they saved maybe two at most.
