CENTRO: 100 Puerto Ricans Oral History Project, 2013-
Vlasto refers to the criticism that Badillo received for proposing that the City University of New York (CUNY) system should go back to its previous rigorous standards and admission requirements. He asserts that Badillo was emphatic on promoting free tuition and lifting the admission standards of CUNY because he was very proud of his own education and achievements being a graduate of a CUNY college.
