Compton Community College (CCC) Trustee Nicole Jones wants to set the record straight. 2UrbanGirls published a Q&A with Ms. Jones that was met with harsh words from a member of the Faculty of CCC. The faculty brought an issue related to a grievance filed by this faculty members colleague who was terminated and the Board upheld the decision.
I find it interesting that only a personnel issue was given as the reason for not supporting my candidacy. Personnel issues are never to be publicly discussed and I have no direct response to that specific allegation.
What I find interesting is what she didn’t say: nothing about regaining accreditation, nothing about the return of local control, or nothing about the college’s increased graduation rates. With so much we have accomplished, it is clear their decision is not based on what’s good for the college and the thousands of students we serve, but what’s good for one employee and that is unacceptable to me.
