  1. Janet Napolitano braces for showdown in Sacramento over UC ‘slush fund’

    [...] Schnur said it was understandable why people, politicians especially, might avoid pointing out Napolitano’s failings on the job. “She might be politically wounded at the moment,” he said, “but she’s going to recover, and she probably has a very long memory, so there’s not much incentive for anyone to get in her doghouse.”

    Sounds just like another politician (Hillary’s Hit List) to me.

    With its 10 campuses, five medical centers and three affiliated national laboratories, UC boasts some of the top-ranking public university campuses in the world. Napolitano frequently notes that it admits more low-income students than its prestigious counterparts; roughly half of all in-state undergraduates have their tuition fully covered by need-based grants. [...]

    I never knew UC fully covered roughly half of all in-state undergraduates tuition by need-based grants. That’s an interesting statistic.
