UC System to Lose State Funding?

According to this Mercury News article, state Treasurer Lockyer is floating a discussion proposal of eliminating state funding for the UC system. I don’t think anyone expects that to happen, but as the article points out (and as I previously blogged), state funding has dwindled to a trivial percentage of some “public” law schools. Once again, this reminds us that some stereotypes about “public” and “private” schools may be outdated.
