Will you pay $50 to fix them?
Since 2000, California’s governors have sucked public investment away from UC, CSU and California’s community colleges — spiking tuition and student debt and knocking tens of thousands of hard-working, qualified students off the ladder of opportunity.
The UC Regents’ decision in November, 2014 to hike tuition 5% a year for 5 years is a direct response to Governor Brown’s slashing of UC’s budget, which is still $173 million (in real dollars) below what it was when he took office despite the fact that UC has enrolled at least 8,500 more students since then is finally forcing a discussion of the key question:
Will Governor Brown and California’s other political leaders restore the promise of high quality affordable higher education for all Californians?
The fix is affordable.
For just $50 a year for the median California family we can restore California’s world-class higher-education system and empower this generation to drive California’s future.
