The alternative to tuition hikes proposed by Jerry Brown, the governor of California, is to turn the UCs into 3-year degree granting institutions. He wants to fire tenured faculty and lecturers and replace them with chat rooms for the profit of millionaire Stanford graduates in Silicon Valley. Online education may be a fine supplement to classroom learning, but only someone as clueless as Brown, who has never set foot in a classroom as an educator, could think that it might replace the type o...

Mayfair Organizations Host 'Community Action' Tianguis in San José - by Alex Darocy
