Despite receiving an increase in state funding last month, the CSU Board of Trustees is set to vote on yet another massive student fee hike. The Trustees will vote next week whether to approve a fee hike that would bump student costs by a combined 15.5 percent between this fall and next.
Demanding quality, affordable, and accessible public education, an estimated 2,000 students, faculty and people in the community came together in solidarity to fight for public education. March 4th 2010 marked a historic date as students from grade school to universities voiced their concerns and demands in front of the state Capitol. Administrators to lawmakers heard the importance of adjusting the priorities to address the needs of the students and faculty and the need to reinvest in public schools and colleges through creative chants, songs and guerrilla theater put together by students and faculty.
March 4, 2010 will be a massive statewide Strike and Day of Action in Defense of Public Education. Hundreds of schools from all sectors of education throughout California will be holding peaceful protests and actions against the catastrophic cuts, layoffs, and fee hikes!
