University of California campus Chancellor Gone Awry

Access, affordability to University of California Berkeley is farther and farther out of reach. UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert J Birgeneau is outspoken on why elite public universities, like Cal, should charge Californians much more. With Birgeneaus leadership UCB is more expensive (on an all-in-cost) than Harvard. Chancellor Birgeneaus charge much 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 Californians more tuition skyrocketed fees by an average 14% per year from 2006 to 2011-12 academic years. 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.
Public 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 Californians more tuition denies middle income Californians the transformative value of Cals higher education.
A sad unacceptable legacy for politicians, parents, children.
