On a special edition of Your Call Thursday at 11am, join a conversation about where City College of San Francisco stands in retaining its accreditation status and the debate over the future of this crucial local institution. Last July, CCSF was told that it would face closure if serious changes were not made. Friday marks the deadline for the college to submit a report making the case for staying open. So what changes need to be made?  What will serve students and the community?  Join this special hour of Your Call with Rose Aguilar.  Thursday at 11am.
