Remember the state’s Master Plan for Higher Education?

In 1960, California legislators joined with education leaders to develop and implement a visionary plan for higher education in California.

This plan saw education as the economic engine of the state, opening educational and economic opportunities to Californians who had been previously excluded.

The Master Plan laid out a system where the state’s top 12.5% of high school graduates would be accepted to UC, the top 33% accepted to the California State University, and anyone could go to the state’s community colleges at no cost.

Imagine: no student fees!

Back then, student fees were nearly zero and the state contributed more than 20% of UC’s budget.

Today, the state only contributes 7% of UC’s budget, while fees, books and housing add up to $30,000/year. Students who qualify for loans graduate with overwhelming debt. Many never come to UC, or drop out because of the immense financial burden.

We are working with unions, student groups, faculty, and anyone else interested in re-kindling the Master Plan’s vision. Our future looks so much brighter when we have affordable, accessible education of the highest quality.

    Throughout the following decade, it is likewise assessed that state funded schools in the California will require employing 195,000 instructors more. Rising understudy enlistment and an expansion in the http://www.assignmentcrux.co.uk quantity of instructors resigning are few elements that have added to the developing interest for educators. Despite the fact that the state exceeds expectations in horticulture, assembling, aviation and excitement, however this “place that is known for brilliant open doors” guarantees to be the most remunerating work goal for educators.

    I would like to caution people who advocate for reducing student fees and increasing government support for education..WITHOUT saying anything about how that funding should be spent! It would be easy for community colleges and universities to lower their costs and pass the savings on to students..KEEP EXPLOITING CONTINGENT FACULTY!!!!! Over the past 50 years..more money to the “system” has meant higher salaries for administrators (who never even talk to students!) and tenured faculty…and ever-increasing reliance on under-paid adjuncts and lecturers. You can’t stop exploitation by increasing funding..THEY WILL FIND PLACES TO PUT MORE FUNDING and STILL NOT stop exploiting contingent faculty. Then, they will eventually come back and ask students for more money for more raisies for administrators! STOP THE EXPLOITATION OF ADJUNCTY FCULTY!!!!!
