UC Board of Regents Approve Tuition Hike

Hosted by

 

 The University of California’s full Board of Regents voted today to increase tuition, despite a “no” vote from the Governor.  Fees could rise from $12,000 to $15,000 a year, making the total cost as much as 32,000.  We hear why one Regent voted “yes,” and what it could mean for access by students raised in California. Also, the City of Adelanto already has three private prisons.  With crime on the decline, why should an outpost in the Mojave Desert have two more?  We’ll talk to the Mayor who pushed through a controversial building plan.
