Prop O would secure $43 million a year for the City College of San Francisco through a parcel tax, or property tax for property owners that increases by size of the unit.
The City College of San Francisco has seen hundreds of layoffs and course cuts in the recent year. Enrollment has dropped from 73,000 in 2012 to just 24,500 today. City college is extremely important as it is the only free college in our city, being an important opportunity for working-class students of color wanting to earn a degree.
The parcel tax would support educational programs for students like job trainings, basic skills classes, and other services to provide students with what they need to complete their studies. For these reasons, SF Rising Action Fund urges voters to vote YES on Prop O.
