Cal State University illegally is pushing the Proposition 30 tax increase, as our site reported today[2].

The CSU Board also just approved 5 percent tuition increases[3] if Prop. 30 doesn’t pass. That’s a real threat against students: Work to increase taxes, or you’ll pay more.

Time for taxpayers to fight back. CSU’s bloated bureaucracy has more administrators than teachers[4].

What’s needed is an initiative that reads, “CSU’s number of administrators shall be limited to half the number of teachers in the system.”

Not only would passing such an initiative preclude the 5 percent tuition increase, tuition actually could be cut sharply.

Any rich folks out there with a couple of million dollars to get signatures for such an initiative? Call it the “Tuition Cut for Students Initiative of 2014.”
