SACRAMENTO — The Legislature’s budget analyst will put Gov. Jerry Brown’s proposals to overhaul the state’s higher-education system under the microscope in a new report set to be released Tuesday.
Brown proposed changes to how the state’s community colleges and public universities are run in his state budget blueprint, which he unveiled last month.
The governor earmarked millions in additional dollars for both the University of California and the California State University systems. But he wants future funding increases to be pegged to performance, pushing the schools to come up with ways to serve more students and ensure they are able to graduate them in a timely manner.
Community colleges have been asked to absorb programs for continuing education and helping adults receive high-school diplomas — programs which have historically been run by K-12 schools.
