CFA surveys students about cuts
August 25, 2009 4:08 PM
SF State students feeling the effect of California's budget crisis are expressing their disgust in a survey done by a faculty union.
The survey, hosted by the SF State chapter of the California Faculty Association, is aimed at students frustrated with not receiving the education that they are paying for. The students were asked to write down the classes they could not get into or were cancelled as a result of the budget cuts.
"Without education, students will be pushed into other alternatives like the military and prisons," said senior Samantha Adame, a CFA representative who was passing out complaint forms to students.
The CFA plans to send the surveys to the CSU board of trustees and the governor.
"We are trying to get the message to Sacramento to think of some alternatives so we can educate our students," said Eloise McQuown, an executive board member of CFA at SF State. "We are going to do anything we can to stop the bleeding and recapture the promise that was made to students."
Faculty and students are not the only ones concerned about the state of the campus.
"It's not right to do that to the kids," said Anne Fong, who has two kids attending SF State. "We pay for the tuition and then they raised it. It's bait and switch."
The CFA will continue to hand out surveys tomorrow at the Cesar Chavez Student Center from noon to 6 p.m.
