After a conference and travel hiatus, CCC returns to a semi-regular posting regimen. And what better than a post on California Watch, according to which, despite the fee hikes in the UC system, "on a per-capita basis, UC is still cheaper than another big and expensive component of the California state bureaucracy – the prison system."
We've posted in the past about the gubernatorial problematic effort to create legislation that curbs prison expenditures in relation to educational expenditures. We also reported on the correctional angle to student protests of fee hikes. Here's hoping that 2011 will be a year that continues the nascent trend of decrease in incarceration rates, and as a result, incarceration expenditures.
