Letter to the Editor – SJ Mercury News
On Thursday protesters maintained the illusion that they have a right to everyone else’s money. SJSU faces tradeoffs because the resources necessary to run a school are scarce. Tuition rates are far below cost so to keep costs down SJSU has to push away students.
But School leaders feel no shame in wasting money while the quality of education suffers. The school will spend $90M to renovate the student union rather while students suffer furlough days! Only the students will benefit from their education (your degree doesn’t get me a high paying job, nor does it make me more intelligent), but they are aghast at the prospect of having to pay for it.
