UCs for Californians

To be delivered to The California State House, The California State Senate, and Governor Jerry Brown

Petition Statement

University of California is now "selling" its admission process to the highest bidder. Qualified high school students are being rejected in favor of out-of-state and foreign candidates, while a portion of the budget is paid by the state government and our tax dollars. We need the Governor to stop this practice and make UCs available to all qualified Californians as a priority.
There are currently 4,875 signatures. NEW goal - We need 5,000 signatures!

Petition Background

Children in the state of California need to have institutions of higher learning available to them at an affordable cost. These seats should not be sold to the highest bidder. The state budget needs to address this issue and the UCs need to be scrutinized for their spending practices. Taxpayers will not bear the burden of funding a system that does not accept their qualified children.
