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.

    For the 12 teams who have made it into the 2018-19 NFL playoffs, the real season begins now. Wild Card Weekend is slated to kick off at 4:35 p.m. on Saturday, and when it does, the race to Super Bowl LIII will begin.

    We have to remember that the plan is not very good nor bad, but it is essential for the current generation. There are some blogs who say that the plan is no adequate. But, I hope now it is necessary to continue the plan.

    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!!!!!
