Would UC Be Better off as a Private University System? - Carter C. Bravmann, , LA Times Letter to Editor

The people of California give but a pittance toward the overall the budget of UC, yet taxpayers expect increased student capacity, only modest funding increases and the benefits of maintaining UC's international academic standing — while demanding that the university hold the line on tuition. This is not possible. If we want a system that can truly be called the University of California, the state must fund it accordingly. Otherwise, the various campuses might find it advantageous to disengage from the state entirely and privatize. UCLA and UC Berkeley would likely fare better. http://www.latimes.com/opinion/readersreact/la-le-1122-saturday-uc-tuition-increase-20141122-story.html
