2030 will NEVER be met. It is just another arbitrary number generated out of bureaucratic desperation. I won't believe it unless the UC System, with its grossly overpaid professors, bureaucrats, and staff releases a report detailing ALL financial calculations, plans, and State funding expectations --- and audited and verified by at least two of the USA's top auditing companies. There's too much lying going on in CA State funding estimates. And not to mention county and city funding estimates!!!

I used to live in Illinois and it was highly corrupt, in an ignorant stupid sort of way. But now I live in CA and I see a highly corrupt State so-called government engaged in huge amounts of govt financial corruption too. But these are not Illinois thugs. They are highly educated educational political and lawyer thugs.

Nothing is free and never will be unless it is something that nobody wants.

Clark Kerr of UC promoted the concept of a free University of California education back in the 1960s and it did not work out over time.

The California community college system during the 1960s offered a free two-year JC education and this too was eliminated as time went on.

Bloated administrative and faculty expenditures spelled the death of these progressive educational idealisms.
