That's certainly the case in Bakersfield where current Bakersfield College President Sonya Christian is at the center a controversy, regarding the future of her employment.

Many students and faculty want to see Foreman return, but her tenure has also drawn criticism for her willingness to work with the district, and her management style. Lauren Foreman of the Bakersfield Californian has been following the story and joined us on Valley Edition to talk about what's next for the college and Christian.
