This document is comprised of four Faculty Association of California Community Colleges (FACCC) newsletters. The September 1999 issue is entitled "Capitol Comments: Read What Lawmakers Say about Community Colleges in Response to the Third FACCCTS Legislator Poll." This newsletter contains the following articles: "Capitol Comments," which examines how community colleges have touched the lives of legislators, why they think highly of the California Community Colleges system, and how they plan to help; and "Authors Debunk Prop 209 Myths," which demonstrates how practical affirmative action can be. The December 1999 issue is entitled "The Spirit of Advocacy." This newsletter contains the following articles: "Transform Partnership for Excellence," which sheds some light on the problems with Partnership for Excellence and why community college leaders must insist on changing; and "Transition to Trustee: A Faculty View," in which the author writes about her experience running for elected office, her toughest decisions as a trustee so far, and why she encourages other faculty members to follow the same path. The March/April 2000 issue focuses on scholarship and public policy, accreditation and quality, the SATs, and the 50 Percent Law, which calls for at least half of each college's unrestricted operational expenditures to go toward direct instruction. Finally, the June 2000 issue examines why American voters nominated Bush and Gore, and discusses Internet research and college FAQs (frequently asked questions). These newsletters also contain a variety of Feature columns and articles such as "Letters to the Editor,""Fast FACCCTS,""Budget: Investment in Education,""Daylight Shines on Part-Timers,""Higher Ed's Challenges," and "Talking about Teaching."
