Governor-elect Jerry Brown to speak at education summit


LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Governor-elect Jerry Brown is expected to brief education leaders on the state’s dismal budget situation at a summit meeting at UCLA Tuesday, the school announced.

UCLA officials said the incoming governor will brief school officials and state education leaders on budget challenges facing elementary and secondary schools and the state’s three university and college systems.

Several hundred people, including chancellors from the University of California system and presidents from California State University campuses, are expected to attend.

Tuesday’s briefing follows a Dec. 8 budget summit in Sacramento, where Brown walked hundreds of legislators and other officials through the state’s budget figures.
