October 7, 2010 has been designated by education activists as a national day of action to defend public education. This day, the third such day since the September 24, 2009, will continue the struggle to raise awareness about the break down in quality of our public education system through chronic underfunding and failure to implement effective reform. At the university level, we are experiencing a fundamental shift away from public funding coupled with an increased reliance on private sector funds and student debt. California’s students have reduced access to UC due to lower enrollments and increased percentages of out-of-state students.
