The California Faculty Association has a new petition that hopes to quell the increase of administrative salaries which have grown exponentially over the years. Given the nature of public education resources, this has a good deal to squelch other places where funding might be going, such as schools, classrooms, and educators. Here’s a blurb:
Between 2007-2013, the number of high-level administrators, all making six figure salaries, grew by 19.2% while the number of full-time faculty was cut by 3%. This new CSU “1%”of administrators and managers have seen salary increases of 24%, and the average campus president’s salary has risen by a whopping 36%.
Sixteen different campuses had actions relating to education as a human right! Here are a few photos from a variety of campuses across the CSU system (Fresno, Sacramento, and San Francisco) that had actions, teach ins, and other events:
Check out our event photos for lobby day 2015!
SQE has a series of actions planned for April! This mostly pertains to worsening tuition issues on campus spawned by the near-perpetual fiscal crisis and subsequent questionable policy decisions of the CSU administration. Education is a right! Here’s a summary:
Within the California State University (CSU) system, tuition, campus based fees, and cost of living have increased dramatically in the past decade. Additionally, administrative salaries have rocketed, faculty wages have stagnated, and the financial weight of CSU expenses has shifted onto the shoulders’ of students and their families.
We must come together, build community and formulate demands that work for our universities. We must act and we must act now.
FULLY FUND THE CSU!!
EDUCATION SHOULD BE FREE!
