Real problems with UC/CSU systems

Re "State isn't prepared for college" (California Focus, April 6): Considering that honors students with a GPA of 4.4 cannot be accommodated in the UC system, this article is incorrectly framed. Yes, we should be raising the level of qualified high school graduates statewide, but the idea that we might not have enough college graduates stems from an entirely different problem. The University of California and California State University systems are overloaded. Qualified students cannot get in and students already in the system cannot obtain classes to graduate on time. Increasing the percentage of high school graduates who qualify will only increase the number of disappointed kids who have worked really hard and still cannot be admitted. Can we please address the limited capacity of our public universities?
