CSU trustees raise tuition and pay in same meeting

Did CSU trustees wake up one day and decide there should be more student riots? I don’t think this will go over very well. There really is no “on the other hand” about it, is there?

Kudos to Gavin Newsom for being the voice of reason, it looks like.

  1. The students are getting more for their money, so of course they should be expected to pay more for it.

    They are getting more staff per each student: http://www.freakonomics.com/2009/04/21/the-true-cause-of-college-tuition-inflation/

    Each of those support staff is receiving higher pay & benefits due to the explosion of public employee unions.

    As mentioned by the Freakonomics guys and seen at my own illustrious alma mater, students have far more infrastructure investment per student then ever before. My college, with relatively flat enrollment, has had more new building in the last 15 years then the previous 50, including the postwar baby boom.

    Now it is a different question whether this spending is a wise use of student and taxpayer dollars. But the students are typically receiving more staff, buildings, sports programs etc then ever before.


  2. Ay, yo! Yous wants top leadership at a third rate school, yous gots ta pay for it. You wouldn’t want some idiot only worth $300,000 a year leading things, especially when you are paying so much for the quality education. Money well invested. Plus, it gives the students a dose of “real world” education!
