Lawmakers Consider Reprieve For Middle Class
Posted by Sebastian Sarti on Jun 19, 2013 - 2:24:53 PM

WESTWOOD—California lawmakers are in talks of creating a plan that would give discounted fees to students at the University of California and California State universities depending on the student’s family income.

Students whose families make below $80,000 are given waivers. Yet, people just above this salary mark still struggle to pay their children’s tuitions.  As tuition hikes have gone up, there has been an increasing uproar by students. A couple of years ago, the University of California, Los Angeles had marches to protest the rising fees.

Tuition in the University of California school system has doubled since 2005, while California State universities have had their tuition doubled since 2007.

In current talks, lawmakers are considering giving a 40 percent discount to families that make between $80,000 to $100,000 a year. For families that make between $100,000 and $125,000 lawmakers are considering a 25 percent discount. For families that make up to $150,000, the tuition would be discounted by 15 percent. 

The aim of this new plan is to make the University of California and California State universities more affordable for middle class families.

Some opponents of this proposed plan feel that the money should be used to help lower class families further their education by reducing their tuition.
