GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Kassiola refers to this as a costless course in the sense that it is a credit, no-credit course designed to alleviate the stress of having exams and worrying about a letter grade. He also wants to provide this class to students and the public as an extra learning supplement, rather than relying solely on getting political information from national media on TV or social media.

“We try to, in this course, emphasize the system, the structure of the system,” he said. “Even though we have students who take American government in high school, they have to take American government in college in order to graduate, whether it’s community college or here at San Francisco State, but we still have an amazing amount of ignorance.”
