In the last few weeks, articles were published regarding the publicity of the Division-I referendum and upcoming special election. As the A.S. Advocate General, I am responsible for the neutral, educational campaign to promote the special election. It was just over a week ago that the referendum was officially approved by the administration, meaning that our neutral campaign could begin.
Did you know that not one staff member or student within the Crafts Center was notified of the closure prior to Sept. 26, only a mere nine days from the start of the first class? I would be horrified as an instructor to find out via email that my job no longer exists.
Dear Editor, The Guardian asserts that because “you’re reading this right now at a table outside Jamba Juice or (less likely) in the back of Hi Thai,” you are reaping the benefits of Price Center. Therefore, the university should force not only you to pay $39 more a year but also future UCSD students almost two decades from now that may not even be born yet.
Frankly, I’m appalled the Guardian’s editorial board accepted (and presumably assigned) the recent article on UC education being leftist —and on the front page no less! I hope that in the future the Guardian will practice what the California Association of Scholars apparently preaches, namely, critical thinking and will look into the biases of the sources its cites. Otherwise, I fear that the paper will soon be citing Fox News as a reputable source. The fact is, CAS (and its parent group NAS) are conservative organizations that hide under the same “fair and balanced” mask; their funding largely comes from other conservative political groups.
