Whereas the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges has consistently opposed the establishment of a separate basic skills discipline, and
Whereas there is confusion about the definition, levels, and courses in basic skills English and math, and
Whereas the value of a basic skills certificate has not been adequately researched and studied,
Resolved that the Academic Senate oppose the establishment or use of basic skills certificates at this time.
This resolution was completed with the work of the Certificates Task Force.
