In addition to being an awesome experiment in freeform college radio, KSFS is above all a learning lab for students from all over the University. Our students learn to conceptualize, plan, produce, and perform live content for a global audience. Moreover, they do it week after week. Unfortunately, fewer and fewer students are being given this opportunity. As you might be aware, funding for public education in California is drying up fast. As a unit of the Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts department here at San Francisco State, we’re no exception. We’ve been a bit better off than other departments and organizations on campus, but not by much. One of our class sections (50% of the program) has already been cut. One of our lecturers (among many in the overall BECA department) has been laid off. Our remaining professor faces furlough (forced unpaid time off) and our facilities face mandatory closures. Worse yet, the situation is only projected to grow more dire.
