      since the "show cause" sanction last year.  That is why the decision to revoke accreditation was unexpected.  

      "Faculty members have pointed fingers at California's regional accrediting commission since last July, when it placed City College on its most severe sanction, "show cause," and gave the college eight months to show why it should remain accredited. Since then, the college has worked hard to address 14 major deficiencies, mostly in governance and finance, that have led to layoffs and bitter labor negotiations.

      The accrediting commission will issue its verdict in late June or early July. If accreditation is revoked, City College would be forced to close.

      In their complaint, the faculty unions say the "show cause" sanction was illegal in the first place."
