It’s pretty great education!  Take a look!

And another great educational understanding of the protests today…HuffPost gives us the racial breakdown of the UC campuses.

Note: UCSD has the least amount of African Americans (1.3%), but UCI runs a close second (2.2%) but isn’t featured in the article.

And also from HuffPost – American’s Largest Tuition Increases – nationwide.

Both the financial crisis and the racial tensions and issues of our campuses are playing out in these protests today, so it’s great to learn more to fully understand why students are fighting!
