University of California Berkeley Chancellor Provost salary #756,000. Democrat and Republican, you can help Cal. The public's University of California harvests family savings, Alumni donations, supporter's money and taxes. Cal. ranked #1 public university total academic cost (resident) as a result of the Provost's, Chancellor's 'charge resident's higher tuition'. UCB tuition is rising faster than other universities.
Cal ranked # 2 nationally in faculty earning potential. Spending on salaries increased 29% in last six years. Believe it: Harvard College less costly.
University of California negates promise of equality of opportunity: access, affordability. Self-absorbed Provost Breslauer Chancellor Birgeneau are outspoken on 'charging residents much higher' tuition.
Birgeneau ($450,000) Breslauer ($306,000) like to blame the politicians, since they stopped giving them their entitled funding. The 'charge instate students higher tuition' skyrocketed fees by an average 14% per year from 2006 to 2011 academic years. If they had allowed fees to rise at the same rate of inflation over past 10 years fees would still be in reach of middle income students. Breslauer Birgeneau increase disparities in higher education, defeat the promise of equality of opportunity, and create a less-educated work force.
Republican, Democrat, and Tea Party you can help. The sluggish economy, 10% unemployment devastates family savings. Simply asking for more taxes (Prop 30, 32, 38) to spend on self-absorbed Cal. leadership, inefficient higher education practices, over-the-top salaries, lavish bonuses, is not the answer. Additional state tax funding must sunset:
UCB is to maximize access to the widest number of residence at a reasonable cost. Birgeneau Breslauer's 'charge Californians higher tuition' denies middle income families the transformative value of Cal.
The California dream: keep it alive and well. Fire Provost George W Breslauer. Birgeneau resigned. Cal. leadership must accept responsibility for failing Californians.

What is the average salary of a chancellor like person in a private school? If you
want top notch public education - you have to pay top notch. If you dont -- then public education will go to the dogs and the only education left will be private and everyone will have to pay for this.
By this time - half the readers have already tuned off and made their judgement.
Now - I'm certainly not arguing that this other reality isn't acceptable or better -- but I want to make sure you realize clearly what the end game is going to be. No safety nets ... and then we are all off to the races.

Notice that the new Chancellor got his start at the community college level then progressed to eventually earning his doctorate degree. Without the passage of Prop 30, the community colleges will lose funding. Students who might otherwise not attend college will lose out. This eventually affect everyone, not just youth, as we all know education leads to better employment, stable economy, etc. Vote wisely....
