No Inflation? Student in the UC System May Disagree

Of course, any one data point is irrelevant, and saying that California has the finances of a third-world country is insulting to many third-world countries. Still, a 32% hike in tuition? Consumer inflation is supposedly nil yet tuition is going up by 32%? I hope those kids don't need to eat or drive to class.

From the San Francisco Chronicle:
The UC regents are expected to put the final seal today on a hefty 32 percent tuition increase as students resume the protests that shut down their board meeting three times Wednesday and required campus police in riot gear to maintain calm.
