Discrimination at Santa Monica College

Recently, we did a blog article entitled "SMC's Game Development Certificate Revealed" in which we discussed Professor Jim Keeshen's alleged denial of equal access to students at Santa Monica College' Academy of Entertainment and Technology ET 18 Storyboarding course. We also discussed this course in our article "Santa Monica College Spring 2006 Cancelled Classes." Here is an Adobe PDF copy of the letter written by our attorney Edward Y. Lee, dated February 24, 2006. This letter was faxed to Joshua Morrison, the attorney who is representing Santa Monica Community College District, who is employed at Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo.

In the letter, both AET student Dustin Curran and I are seeking reinstatement into Professor Keeshen's ET 18 course, a course we were initially enrolled in and have paid for. Despite Professor Keeshen stating the course was full, he enrolled other students and denied us access. The final letter sent to Attorney Morrison was signed, but I have provided the unsigned version for reference. We shall see what transpires next Wednesday. Regardless of the outcome, it is always important for students to stand up for their rights.

This is our 100th article on our blog! Here's to another 100 in the future!
