Andy Shaw: City’s ‘fuzzy math’ doesn’t add up
“City Colleges aggressively embraces the awarding of diplomas to former students who earned enough credits to get a sheepskin but transferred, dropped out or died before receiving one.” (Chicago Sun-Times, Oct. 26, 2015)
Community College Leaders Cash In
“Though tuition is rising and enrollment declining at the seven-campus City Colleges of Chicago, Chancellor Cheryl Hyman was given a $35,000 bonus earlier this year by the agency’s board, bringing her total compensation to $320,667.” (Better Government Association, Oct. 11, 2015).
Thank you to everyone who came out to vote on City Colleges’ contract proposal! The turn out was amazing! So many great conversations about all that adjuncts to do for their students at City Colleges! Many students stopped by to show their support! And, we had more than 100 new members sign up to take part in our union! The results of voting will be available Tuesday! Thank you again for voting and thank you to all of those who volunteered their time to make this campaign so successful!
