FROM THIS EPISODE

Faced with a cash crunch, UC campuses are cutting back on new students from California. Out-of-state newcomers have to pay more, so they’re on the increase. The “Crown Jewel of the Golden State” now depends on tuition — and California parents are organizing against what they call a “betrayal.” We’ll hear from one of them and get the University’s explanation.

Also, the DWP’s top water cop visits KCRW’s Saul Gonzalez at home — with a lot of surprises. What do you think uses the most water in your house?

Out-of-State Students Increasing UC Presence 14 MIN, 13 SEC

Despite new taxes for education passed by the voters in 2012, the University of California’s getting just half the state money it did a decade ago. One way to make up the difference: admit more students from other states and countries, because they pay three times more in tuition than Californians. But that means more competition for home-grown kids — even when they’re highly qualified.
