Re: “Inside Rahm's privatization economic team

Tuition increased at public university by 14% each year from 2006-12. UC Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau ($450,000), Provost Breslauer ($306,000) pick the pockets of resident students and their parents clean. Birgeneau’s, Provost’s tuition increases make public Cal. the # 1 ranked most expensive for resident students (during the greatest recession of modern times). Cal. is more expensive than Harvard College. Birgeneau’s, Breslauer’s outrageous 14% annual tuition increases (2006 – 20012) provide a shocking picture of out of touch, self-serving senior management.

Robert J Birgeneau and Provost have forgotten they are public servants, stewards of the public money, not overseers of their own fiefdom. Pay ex-politician $300,000 for several lectures; Recruit affluent foreign & affluent out of state students who then displace qualified instate applicants; Spend millions (prominent East Coast university accomplishing same at 0 cost) for OE consultants to remove Chancellor, Provost created inefficiencies but prevent consultants from examining senior management.

Sack clueless Provost George Breslauer. Wasteful Chancellor Birgeneau resigned.
