Martinez, Katherine, Ed.
FACCCTS, v5 n1-4 Sep 1998-May 1999
This document contains the four Faculty Association of California Community Colleges (FACCCTS) newsletters published during the 1998-99 academic year. In the September 1998 issue, faculty members talk about what shared governance means and how to improve it on individual campuses. The issue also features Gray Davis' plans for the community colleges if he is elected governor and presents endorsements to support education-friendly candidates for the November 3 election. The December 1998 issue explains how to calculate new retirement benefits in the State Teachers' Retirement System, how the changes affect all faculties, and who faculty should thank for the improvements. Faculty member Carolyn Russell gives a first-person account about the grassroots efforts that successfully convinced state legislators to pass the retirement package. The February 1999 issue features Assemblywomen Gloria Romero and Charlene Zettel and their commitment to helping community colleges receive the funding they need to do their jobs well. It also provides a list of legislators and their primary community college districts. The May 1999 issue features former CCC students who are now legislators and their views on California community colleges: Assemblywoman Sarah Reyes, Assemblyman Lou Correa and Senator James Brulte. The issue also provides highlights of the 1999 FACCC conference, which focused on the discussion of partnerships. Each issue of the Journal also contains various features such as letters to the Editor, Legislative Report, FACCCTS Survey, and Book Review. (JA)
