Lots of children left behind

We're told by everyone from President Obama on down that, in order to prepare for the "challenges of the future," education is the key. And here's what government is actually doing about that:
San Jose State University is once again shrinking the size of its freshman class...with less state money to support teaching, 2,500 fewer student slots will be available at SJSU next fall; last year, the school cut 3,000 slots. No transfers were allowed to arrive this spring.

The SJSU cutbacks are part of a significant reduction within the entire California State University system. At a Tuesday news conference, CSU Chancellor Charles Reed said the system will offer 40,000 fewer seats for the 2010-11 academic year, a 7 percent cut.
