Some people have found Mark Yudof’s recent remarks in the New York Times regarding public education to be flippant. Some have even called him an embarrassment to the UC. Still others are calling for his resignation. You know what UCMeP says to all these misguided missives?
Everyone just needs to layoff Yudof (as in get off his back!) .
It is beyond obvious that these Yudof detractors have not read the entire New York Times interview, especially the end where he magnanimously offers to reduce his salary by $200,000.
All he asks for in return, is a private jet comparable to Air Force One.
Now we know that the budget here at the University of California is tight and that the State of California couldn’t possibly afford such a request.
That’s why we’re asking all of you to dig deep in your pockets and for once think about someone else besides yourself. We are asking you to contribute to a very worthy cause, and “Help Buy Mark Yudof a Plane!”
And remember, all donations are tax deductible.
