Brown on Cal Grant Funding and GPAs, Round Up

"Brown’s 2012-13 budget proposal reduces funding to Cal Grant program by $131.2 million by increasing the minimum GPA requirement for Cal Grant A from a 3.0 to a 3.25, Cal Grant B from a 2.0 to a 2.75 and community college transfer entitlement awards from a 2.4 to a 2.75."

also this story at CSU

Calif. Speaker Pérez wants to cut college costs

some analysis on that here.

also see these latest posts: from Changing Universities and University Probe's Charles Schwartz is in the Chron of Higher Ed on UC Financial Reports and Remaking the University.

the California Channel is a great resource- there are many recent videos on textbook costs, community college initiatives and press conferences on higher ed- peruse the recent videos section-- many times telling comments are made that are not necessarily picked up by the MSM.

Also, Daily Cal raises some very important questions about the lack of transparency of UC Regent Chair Lansing's meetings with cherry picked groups of students tour...
Board of Regents Chair Speaks With Student Leaders Behind Closed Doors About UC’s Future
- as an observation, there is a reason why CA has public meetings laws (the regents are public officials, the students attend a public university) to protect citizens- are students giving up some of their power by agreeing to meet in these meetings as the regents set them up?
