And it is still hard to get the right courses at the right time in order to move on."
It focuses on the CA community colleges. So does this Carla Rivera LA Times piece.
And, the Governor attends CSU trustees meeting this week. here is more on CSU issues.
WSJ is finding the exchange b/ween the Gov. and UC regents interesting, too.
"Of course, the universities by design operate independently from the state and regents don't have to do what the governor asks. Then again, they probably can't afford not to."
