A modest proposal for the University of California
IoES Professor Matt Kahn shares his proposal for keeping UCLA great in a guest blog for The Christian Science Monitor.
UC schools shouldn't count on state funds for financial stability, as California barely balanced its just-passed budget. Here's a proposal for keeping UC schools great.
1. Given that Stanford and Harvard are UCLA's peer group, we will charge a tuition that is 25% lower than their tuition. From a student's perspective, UCLA will continue to be a bargain.
2. Out of state students will be 40% of the entering class each. This will allow us to continue to attract excellent students and attract new blood to California.
