California's public universities are stiffing middle-class students - excellent op ed in Mercury News - includes comments from Stanford's Hennessy and uses the term "need blind"...
"The true question here is one of access: Will Californians be priced off the campuses their parents' and grandparents' tax dollars created and maintained?"
another point of view, perhaps best described as "Californian Blind":
Give Me Your Wired, Your Rich, Your Huddled Brainiacs by "Cécile Hoareau is a Fulbright postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Studies in Higher Education of the University of California Berkeley."
"In short, the tuition of each international student could, in theory, cover the cost of a local student."
-- we don't have time for the "in theory" business, let's get real about solutions pls. still lots of questions about where the tuition goes that need to be answered. the piece seems to have been written in a bubble far away from the news that came out on UC last week--see right hand column.
