Gov. Jerry Brown's budget implications in education

It didn't take long for advocacy groups to venture early observations about Gov. Brown's budget proposal. Scott Lay, president of the Community College League of California fired off one that had some interesting points. Among them:

* Limit state-supported instruction in community colleges to 90 units. Units beyond the cap would be not be state supported, but available at full cost to the student.
* Shift of the remaining adult education program, including $300 million, from K-12 schools to community colleges, and an additional $15.7 million from the K-12 apprenticeship program to community college apprenticeship programs.

I foresee a lot of animated discussions on the horizon. Stay tuned.
