CSUs and UCs are strapped for money

Picture by Nehrams 2020
Okay, if you're a college student in CA, breathe a sigh of relief that Proposition 30 passed. What might've been the fallout if voters had gone in the other direction? CSU Board OKs Tuition Increase -- Good Only If Prop 30 Fails was published in the "LA Times" on Sept. 19, 2012.

Also, the UC system is considering increasing enrollment of out-of-state and international students to help during this time of funding shortages from the state. These students pay higher tuition and this brings in more money to the UCs. However, it hurts California residents who hope to realize their dream through a UC education. Hall: In-State UC Enrollment Faces Diminished Future appeared in the "U-T San Diego" on Sept. 21, 2012.
