Begging For an Education

Sandy Banks:

My daughter has snagged spots in a data analysis class, a Native American history course and another on comparative freedom movements of the 1960s. She’s hot on the trail of a biology class that is rumored to have an opening.
But the course that she and her classmates at San Francisco State really need — Crashing Classes 101 — isn’t among the school’s offerings. And if it were, it wouldn’t have an empty seat.
