Berkeley Dean Calls for Privatization

The dean of U-C Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law says it should privatize to gain more control of its management and finances – and gain flexibility from administrators. Coming from Berkeley it sounds like a crazy idea, however, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford proposed a plan to all state universities to privatize and become private schools.

Geoffrey Segal is the director of privatization and government reform at Reason Foundation, a nonprofit think tank advancing free minds and free markets. He is also editor of Reason's Privatization Watch.
