What about higher ed, ed in general?
in depth on UC and CSU in:
"Follow Austerity Road: The Governor's Higher Education Budget"
The Committee of Two deal provides UC with an additional basic general fund allocation of $125.4. So that brings the basic general fund allocation for the coming year up to $3,260.5. And then in the coming year, as part of the deal, we get an additional $171.0 from the rainy-day fund bringing the total to $3,431.5. So far, so good.
But wait! We are supposed to get $436 (we're still in $millions) for the pension fund over three years. That would be $436/3 = $145.3 per year. That amount is more that the $122.0 said to come from the rainy-day fund during the current year. But it's less than the $171.0 for next year. Does that mean that in 2017-18, we get the remaining $143.0? ($436 - $122 - $171) Or are each year's contributions subject to negotiations?
So exactly what is UC getting from the state for what this year? Never mind media releases...
In the case, Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, a group of public-school teachers in California want the court to rule that the First Amendment prohibits their union from requiring them to pay what are known as "fair-share fees." Such fees, which all workers in a bargaining unit are obligated to pay, help cover the costs of maintaining union contracts.

Didn't they have Bain roll through at about the same time Cal did? So now BCG?
