Official says it could take several more years before Compton Community College regains the accreditation it lost in 2005

 
Los Angeles Times
 
Nearly six years after Compton Community College lost its accreditation after an array of financial problems and administrative corruption, the school remains on life support, community college officials said at a campus event Friday.

School officials had embezzled money and the college was seen as woefully mismanaged when an oversight agency revoked Compton's accreditation in 2005. After the college gave up on its appeals, it was subsumed by El Camino Community College in Torrance, becoming El Camino Compton Center.

In a candid speech Friday, Genethia Hudley-Hayes, the appointed special trustee for Compton Community College District, said the road to accreditation is a long and difficult one. She also addressed grumblings in the community that by having its college become an El Camino satellite campus, Compton was losing a point of pride.

"If we get rid of El Camino, we as a patient on life support, we are dead," Hudley-Hayes said in her speech, adding later, "I expect the community to stop whining, stop complaining, to roll up their sleeves and get behind El Camino and Compton Community College."
