This Tuesday, California Senate Democrats proposed a bill to increase the University of California's nonresident supplemental tuition by 17 percent while keeping in-state tuition flat in 2015-2016. The proposal, which aims to keep UC education affordable for residents, came after the UC Board of Regents' vote last month to increase tuition up to 5 percent each year over the next five years. Are you in favor of the Democrats' proposal?
  • No, it unfairly puts more financial burden on out-of-state and international students and their families. (45%, 111 Votes)
  • Yes, but despite short-term benefits, the proposal does not address core funding issues at the UC. (29%, 70 Votes)
  • Yes, it will give California residents more opportunities to receive a college education. (21%, 52 Votes)
  • I don't know how I feel about this matter. (5%, 11 Votes)
