Tax Cut Watch: "All enemies of education [should be] kicked out of power."


Today's L.A. Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:

UC targets

Re "UC regents OK 9.6% tuition hike for this fall," July 15

Many articles about the continuously increasing tuition for our universities and colleges have been accompanied by pictures of students protesting administrators. They have the wrong targets.

They should picket at the offices of every state legislator who has signed a pledge never to raise any tax. Their philosophy to "starve the beast" refers to our government.

Not only should these students be protesting, they should register to vote and encourage their families to do likewise so that all enemies of education are kicked out of power.
