I’m so grateful that I didn’t get trapped in remedial courses I didn’t need. I got an A in College Statistics, and now I am on my way to earning a degree... Every student deserves this kind of opportunity.

STUDENTS' RIGHTS

On January 1, 2018, AB 705, a new law passed in California that says no student can be denied entry into a transfer-level math or English course. 

But most students still don't know about their right to enter into transfer-level.

The evidence shows that we are more successful when we have the classes we need to graduate.

THE CAMPAIGN

We are fighting for immediate implementation of AB 705 by California Community Colleges because we cannot waste anymore time or money in low level classes that do not count towards graduation. We believe that all students are capable of succeeding in college and, with the right types of support, all students who want to earn a degree or transfer should start at transfer-level math and English. 

We are students invested in our own success and believe that community colleges must fully implement the new law so that all students have the opportunity to reach their academic goals. We are advocating and organizing at the City College of San Francisco to change it's current policies and practices, comply with the law, and refrain from blocking students from their right to enter into transfer-level courses. 

STUDENTS OF COLOR ARE PARTICULARLY LIKELY TO DROP OUT, IN PART BECAUSE THEY ARE DISPROPORTIONATELY PLACED INTO REMEDIAL CLASSES. THIS CAN ADD YEARS TO THEIR COURSE LOAD AND REDUCES THEIR CHANCES OF COMPLETING COLLEGE
