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.

Email opinion Calif. State Senators Assembly Members (The author has 35 years’ consulting, has taught at Cal. where he observed the culture & ways of senior management & was not fired)
