John Sperling Dies

John Sperling, the outspoken educator who made billions by starting the University of Phoenix, died this week at age 93 in Marin County. Son Peter Sperling has emerged as a quiet force in Santa Barbara business and community affairs, starting and bankrolling the San Roque School, founding CallWave, backing liberal politicians, and donating to land-preservation campaigns. He also helped his father run what became the profitable educational juggernaut in Arizona.
