Pick your poison: more cuts to education or more taxes. 

Students mostly from Cal State Los Angeles protested outside Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s downtown office this morning against likely $21 billion in additional across-the-board cuts. 

Like the UC and community college systems, CSU schools have raised fees while reducing services. 

The state of education, and the state of the state more broadly, is forcing some to wonder, is California is the next Dubai?
