UC Berkeley: Charge Californians Higher Tuition
Posted in the El Cerrito Forum

University of California Berkeley is farther and farther out of reach for Californians. UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert J Birgeneau is outspoken on why elite public universities, like Cal, should charge Californians more. With Birgeneaus leadership UCB is more expensive (on an all-in-cost) than private Harvard and Yale. Chancellor Birgeneaus charge more tuition to Californians makes Cal. the most expensive public higher education in our country!
Birgeneau ($450,000 salary) likes to blame the politicians, since they stopped giving him every dollar expected. The Chancellors charge more instate tuition skyrocketed fees by an average 14% per year from 2006 to 2011-12 academic year. If Birgeneau had allowed fees to rise at the same rate of inflation over the past 10 years they would still be in reach of most middle income students. Increasing funding is not Cals solution.
As a public university UC Berkeley is to maximize access to the widest number of instate students at a reasonable cost with a mission of diversity and equality of opportunity. Birgeneaus and Provost George Breslauers ($306,000 salary)charge more instate tuition denies middle income Californians the transformative value of Cals education.
A sad unacceptable legacy for daughters, sons of Californians.
