Well, something worked. After a tumultuous year of panic, protests and flaming Mark Yudof effigies (it probably happened), Schwarzenegger has finally promised a substantial return of funding to California’s higher education system.
Specifically, he announced that he will not sign the 2010-2011 state budget unless it includes the return of over $848 million to the UC, CSU and community college systems, a proposal he made in January. Nor will he sign it if it does not include a Cal Grant financial aid program.
