Whereas the private foundations incorporated under the business and professions code are not under the provisions of the Brown Act, and

Whereas many of these foundations offer classes over which local academic senates have no influence, and

Whereas these private foundations may conflict with the basic premise of State supported education, and

Whereas the basic equity issues of the Serrano decision which applied to K-12 also hold true in spirit for adult students in the community colleges,


Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges reaffirm its position that local foundations be established under the provisions of the Education Code, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend that the Education Code section describing foundations remain in the Education Code rather than be transferred to Board of Governors' authority.
