George Wooding is in a wheelchair and spoke at the January Board of Trustees meeting. Unfortunately, Alex Randolph, the board chair shut George out and only allowed him one minute to speak. Others have been allowed by the Board to use extra time.
As president of the Board, Alex Randolph set a terrible pattern of discrimination for those at City College who have disabilities.
The board, administrators, and the college lawyer need to apologize to George and to all who have disabilities and suffer discrimination at CCSF.
The board has the responsibility now to meet with the DSPS (Disabled Students Programs and Services) faculty and students at all the campuses to make sure that disability discrimination is not allowed at CCSF or anywhere else.
