California's UC System Shows Why Privatizing Public Higher Education Is Not The Solution

I had the unfortunate circumstance of entering college in 2008, the year the U.S. financial crisis began. When I entered as a freshman at the University of California, Davis, my tuition was $9,497. Flash forward four years, and not only has my skull began to crack under the pressure of my growing brain, but I am also paying $15,123 dollars – 60 percent more – for my senior year. Good thing I’m getting out soon, because tuition is only going up.
