Tuition Is Up, State Support Is Down, So UC Protests

Hosted by

The University of California faces a budget shortfall of $753 million. The Board of Regents has ordered faculty furloughs, increases in student fees and cutbacks in educational services. That led to planned faculty walkouts and student protests today at all ten campuses statewide.  We get an update from reporters at two of the protest sites, UC administrators and protest planners.
