It’s official, University of California regents approved a 32% tuition hike that will start next fall. Despite protest by students from across the state of California, University of California Regents approved a tuition hike that will bring fees close to triple the UC cost a decade ago. In more uplifting news, the Regents approved a partnership with L.A. County to reopen Martin Luther King, Jr. Hospital in South Los Angeles by 2013. Let’s hope they keep the hospital affordable.
