Letter to the Editor: Geography: The Whole World, Not Just A Map

Filed under Letters to the Editor, Opinions

Geography: The Whole World, Not Just A Map When I tell people that I’m majoring in geography, the question I get asked most often is, “You can get a degree in that?” Second most often is, “So do you know all the state capitals?” Yes, you can get a degree and a job in geography even if, like me, you can’t name more than a dozen state capitals. Geography is so much more than state capitals. It is explor...

In regards to both opinion pieces published on Thursday, we are writing this letter to clear up some of the misconceptions the Daily 49er has towards the Associated Students Inc. We find it strange that a media source would criticize a student government for being more transparent. It would be a complete misuse of student fee money to hire a third party organization to review all officers in ASI. A third party would...

Daily 49er article is negative about students The article that appeared in the May 1 issue of the Daily 49er, "Shuttle situation needs to be clear for students" presents a stereotyped view of students as smelly and "bleary-eyed" who "go to class ...

Low-income schools need more funding In the history of the education system, there have been efforts to eliminate racial segregation and provide children with the same quality education. For example, Mendez v. Westminster and Brown v. Board of Education set out to eliminate racial segregation in public schools. However, despite of this effort, are schools really desegregated? Consider public schools in Santa Barbara and Watts. They...

A message from Agatha Gucyski I cannot express enough how eager I am to begin my term as the Associated Students Inc. treasurer for 2013-14. I am so happy that the students and Daily 49er have conveyed their support and faith in me. However, not only am I excited to be the next treasurer, but also I am excited to work alongside with ASI President John Haberstroh and Vice President Jonathon Bolin. Though we did not run together o...

California social work laws need reform Social workers are heading to Sacramento on April 21 to lobby for the Social Work Title Protection bill. Assembly Bill 252 will prohibit an individual from representing himself or herself as a social worker without possessing a social work degree accredited by the commission of the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). As social work students, we believe this bill is important as we have taken the courses and comp...

Prop. 30 money should be used to fund education While campaigning for Proposition 30, California university students were enthusiastically reminded by Gov. Jerry Brown that the new tax hikes would "send a message to the rest of the country that we as a people can invest together in our schools..." and that "education has to be number one." Cal State University students were promised money from Prop. 30 would be used to fund educa...

Students can prevent sexual assault cases To think that in 2013, survivors of sexual assault must grapple with either reporting the horrific incidents and face public scrutiny or living in silence. This is disgusting. These survivors often feel shocked and disheartened when they soon realize that their own decisions and actions will be examined, judged and often blamed for the assault. Similar sentiments are recalled by a current gra...
