@CalCommColleges 2/ Building on legislation championed by @CollegeOpp and @ASM_Irwin, it summarizes a new beginning for understanding the capacity of #comm_college students & their actual preparation for college, & formalizing their right to progress naturally in their academic coursework. #AB705
@cjp_still@SFdirewolf 2/ “Being a child...is to be nearly
