Reclaiming Education is meant to draw attention to the deficiencies of a UC education and the misplaced priorities of allocating resources by the Californian government. Especially in San Diego, the priority of the military over the educational system is glaringly apparent. As students, we feel the effects of the accumulation of debt for a degree that is becoming increasingly irrelevant in today’s economy, as it guarantees nothing. Yet, at the same time we realize our privilege in being able to take out the loans to get this education, as there are many others for whom this is merely a pipedream. Together our faces represent a rupture, the reality, of the spectacle of education.
