(From the San Leandro Education Foundation)

This year's San Leandro High School graduating class was one of the school's largest, comprising 633 students. Among the 545 students who filled out a survey on their post-high school plans, 519 - or 95 percent - reported they are going on to an institution of higher education, whether it be a university, community college or trade school. Others have plans to join the armed forces or enter the workplace. Seniors also reported receiving a total of $1.2 million in scholarships (including their renewable scholarships from colleges).

In addition, 48 students walked the stage at Lincoln High School's spring graduation; while no formal reporting was done staff estimate about 75 percent are going on to community college or trade school.

Access, affordability to University is farther and farther out of reach. University of California Berkeley Chancellor Birgeneau, Provost Breslauer are leaving an indelible mark on access and affordability to Cal. Both are outspoken on why elite public Cal. should ‘charge Californians much more’ tuition. Number 1 ranked Harvard is now less costly (all in costs). UC Berkeley tuition is rising faster than costs at other universities. The ‘charge more’ tuition policy makes Cal. the most expensive public university! Birgeneau ($450,000 salary) Breslauer ($306,000 salary) like to blame the politicians, since they stopped giving them every dollar expected. The ‘charge Californians more’ tuition skyrocketed fees by an average 14% per year from 2006 to 2011-12 academic years. If Birgeneau Breslauer had allowed fees to rise at the same rate of inflation over the past 10 years they would still be in reach of most middle income students

“UC San Diego lost a trio of prestigious cancer researchers to Rice University. Rice had offered them 40 percent pay raises over their total compensation packages, which at UCSD ranged from $187,000 to $330,000 a year. They take with them many times that amount in government grants. Scrapping the new Vice Chancellorship for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion could have saved at least one, if not two, of those biologists’ positions" UC Berkeley’s new vice chancellor for equity and inclusion, Gibor Basri, has 17 people working for him in his immediate office, including a “chief of staff,” two “project/policy analysts,” and a “director of special projects.” According to state databases, Basri’s base pay in 2009 was $194,000, which does not include a variety of possible add-ons, including summer salary and administrative stipends. By comparison, the official salary for assistant professors at UC starts at around $53,000
