Approximately two dozen UC Berkeley faculty joined the “99 Mile March for Education and Social Justice” on Friday. The march left Oakland on Thursday and will arrive in Sacramento on Monday for a rally at the state Capitol on behalf of public education.

UC Berkeley faculty joined the march Friday afternoon to walk the stretch from Richmond to Vallejo.

“We are marching to draw attention to the plight of public education in California and to implore Californians to re-invest in it,” said Wendy Brown, a professor of political science and co-chairwoman of the Berkeley Faculty Association.

“For all its resources, innovation and wealth, California has sunk to nearly the bottom of the nation in per-student spending, and our public higher education system, once the envy of the world, is in real peril.”

On Monday, UC faculty from several Northern California campuses will join students, parents, workers, teachers and administrators from all sectors of California public education for a rally at the Capitol.

“We are going to the Capitol because re-funding public education is urgent, not only for reasons of equal opportunity and human development but because universal access to high-quality education reduces the need for prisons, policing, welfare and a range of other expensive social services,” said Richard Walker, professor of geography and co-chairman of the Berkeley Faculty Association.

The March 1-5 “Days of Action on Behalf of Public Education” are endorsed by the Council of UC Faculty Associations, the umbrella body for faculty associations on individual UC campuses.

    We're abandoning our classrooms in the interest of education. Makes sense to me.

    The students are protesting because they want to become over educated idiots for free. How about developing some common sense instead. Higher education is overrated.
