Summerskill on possible SF State Budget Cuts

About This Item

KPIX Eyewitness News report from February 25th 1967 at San Francisco State College, featuring scenes from a press conference by President John Summerskill (1925-90), about proposed cuts to the college's budget of $213 million. He explains that if the State Legislature approves these cuts or if Governor Ronald Reagan vetoes increases in the budget, then the college will have to accept 2600 fewer students next year and have 100 less faculty members. He goes on to reflect that: "There is just no way that San Francisco State or any of the other state colleges can maintain quality of education with that degree of support cut. There's no way that we can admit the expected 20,000 additional students next year with that degree of support."
